Thanks for posting the link. I got a chance to see the story last night as well. Another example of an introduction gone bad.

For those who didn't see the story on TV- they showed these large carp leaping several feet (maybe three-four feet clear of the water) and smashing into boats and fisherman as they speed along in their boats. It looked as if it is the sound/approach of the boat which causes them to leap like that. You could see it was quite startling to the fisherman. I wonder if they also jump like that when hooked?
