I’ve talked about the Asian Carp invasion (bighead carp and silver carp) before and I can never remember the details. Are they here? Where is here when wildlife officials are monitoring all five Great Lakes and interconnected waterways from the Gulf of Mexico northward? What are the control methods currently in place and why can’t I buy Asian Carp at the store if it’s comparable to walleye and can be fried? If it can be fried don’t set it aside!
Apparently one of the methods to prevent the carp from entering Lake Michigan, the Great Lake that is shared by four states and is not bordered by Canada, in Illinois is an electric fence. But researchers, including Cory Suski an assistant professor at the University of Illinois, think two barrier methods is better than one and so they drugged some fish to the point of disorientation with carbon dioxide.
