The Asian carp dominates the biomass, creating pro

lems for commercial and recreational fishing, boating and water skiing. It deters a

lot of new business owners when they talk to us about opening in Kentucky,” Brooks said.

In some waterways, carp are so abundant that they jump out of the water into boats, sometim

es hitting boaters and creating a nuisance. The massive schools of the fish are also hazardous to water skiers

on popular lakes. Commercial fishermen in pursuit of other types of fish have to try hard not to catch them.

Asian carp are having a $7 billion negative effect on various businesses in the US.

But He Lining, development manager at Two Rivers F

isheries, said the fish are not a problem, but an opportunity.

According to He, who is writing a book about the species, the fish was introduced to the US

by scientists in the late 1960s and early ’70s as an easy and cheap way to treat domestic waste.

But horticulture is facing a crisis, says Cheng, as, accor

rding to her, the average age of various professionals in gardens and sce

nic spots is 45 and positions like groundskeepers and display workers are often left open.

Also, the demand for horticulture professionals is growing as the market has boomed in the past 10 years.

So, as plant growers reach retirement age, there are too few gardeners ar

riving to replace them, says Zhao Shiwei, the chief engineer of the Beijing Institute of La

ndscape Architecture, the only municipal public welfare landscape research institute in Beijing.

“There’s an obvious gap in plant cultivation and maintenance talent in recent years, especially those who have an ove

rall understanding of horticulture landscape designs and garden flower cultivation,” he says.

Zhao also says that horticulture involves a wide range of fields, and a long period is needed to train professionals.

“More importantly, the work is relatively tedious for young professionals. Nowadays fewer young people are keen on th

e horticulture industry, and we are concerned that the industry is facing difficulty to attract and retain talent,” he adds.

As for front-line gardeners, many of them are known as “city farmers” as they need to weed and mulch for the plants.

Agreed Zhang Lanmei, 57, a retired Shanghai local

 “I go on trips twice a year. I usually do not buy souvenirs on the road, because they are q

uite similar and less creative, which I can easily find at the stalls of Shanghai’s Town God Temple.”

Netizens in China joke online Yiwu’s residents need

not buy souvenirs at other places as all such articles originate in their hometown.

As Shi sees it, there is immense scope to reinvent the concept of souvenirs in general and Chinese souvenirs in particular.

Souvenirs, he said, should be made in various formats-a local snack, curries from In

dia, black tea from Sri Lanka, dried apricots from Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, or Spanish Iberian ham.

They could also be in the form of a delicate little gift of a key ch

ain, handicraft or fridge magnet, but a special local product would be ideal.
