Asian Carp


Environmental DNA tests last week were positive for Asian Carp in the Chicago river.


Michigan reaffirmed its pledge of $8-million this week towards building a barrier to stop Asian Carp from entering the Great Lakes.

A new study suggests that Silver Carp may not be reaching Lake Michigan because of pollution in the Illinois River.

Invasive Asian Carp may pose a greater threat to the Great Lakes than previously feared, according to a new report from the University of Michigan.


Eight states and two Canadian provinces are expected to meet this week to discuss the Army Corps of Engineer’s proposal for keeping Asian Carp out of the Great Lakes.
