    Hundreds of Asian carp have been filmed leaping out of a lake
    when they were stunned with electricity by wildlife officials in

    Footage shows “shocking boats” jolting the fish from Lake
    Barkley by sending electrical currents surging through the water.

    The technique, known as “electrofishing”, temporarily stuns but
    does not kill the fish, which can allow biologists to collect
    them for study.

    The carp caught in this video, however, were eventually
    harvested and given to commercial anglers for sale at markets.

    This is because Asian carp are an invasive species of fish that
    cause problems for ecosystems in the US.
