    Yes, they are bony but are sold to Asian markets. If you know how to clean and prepare them right, I hear they are alright.

    Yes, if cooked properly. I personally don't know any recipes as I've never had Asian Carp myself but I heard smoking them is pretty good. Most people consider them trash fish so then that means that they are trash for eating. I would look up some recipes for them if you're considering eating them. Good luck fishin'!
