Wildlife officials in Kentucky are launching an experimental program to fight back against the growing Asian carp problem.

The video shows a boat applying an electrical current, causing thousands of Asian carp to jump out of the water.

The Asian carp is the most invasive species of fish in the country

According to Scientific American, Asian carp, native to Asia, have been a problem in the U.S. since they appeared in the 1970’s.Wildlife officials are concerned about their growing population as the fish can lay hundreds of eggs at a time, and spread into new habitats quickly. They are also capable of jumping over low dams, and have spread into countless bodies of water due to flooding.
