- By collecting invasive seafood on shellfish beds, for instance, we basically provide a free weeding service
- Many invasive species can be a fouling organism to eat but some other countries can eat the invasive species as a delicacy
- European green crabs considered one of the top 100 most destructive invasive species in the world
- Japanese knot weed named one of the world’s 100 worst invasive species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and is currently thriving in 39 states
- Feral hogs devours native and endangered species and fight for resources by other species
- The warty comb jelly, one of the most invasive species on earth, is linked to the collapse of a handful of fisheries.
To eat an invasive species means that we need to hunt more invasive species so that they can create less trouble to the area that they invaded and cause trouble to the ecosystem. Bun Lai created a solution for this problem, he created a restaurant where his menu is only served is invasive species. Bun Lai fished or hunt his own to researched about its habitat and to know how to cook them deliciously for people to eat them. Many invasive species can be a fouling organism to eat but some other countries can eat the invasive species as a delicacy. For example, sea quirt is an indigenous species in the Philippines, and it is a fouling organism and considered as pests in the shellfish industry but in South Korea it is a delicacy meal.
After reading this article, the article is really short but interesting. Bun Lai's restaurant is really unique since his meals contain invasive species and unique to the audience's taste buds. I think we should eat more invasive species than eating the ones who contribute to the ecosystem, like native animals because they are decreasing due to the population growth. Since invasive species causes trouble then we can eliminate them by eating, many species are endangered because of hunting or fishing to survive or to eat then why not do the same for invasive species.
