Invasive Carp to Be Removed From Lake Minnetonka
A years-long effort to remove invasive carp from the headwaters of Lake Minnetonka began Friday, when fisherman pulled up the first nets set on Steiger Lake in Victoria.

The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District laid out the carp management plan after a three-year study from the University of Minnesota's Aquatic Invasive Species revealed an unprecedented number of invasive common carp in the Six Mile Creek system.

Carp disrupt ecosystems through their feeding habits, they feed the bottom of the lake, uprooting aquatic plants, stirring up sediment, releasing nutrients that makes it hard for other species and the ecosystem to thrive.

Over the next 10 years, the watershed will focus on removing carp from 14 lakes that drain in Lake Minnetonka. Efforts to create carp barriers are also going to be rolled out, as well as other measures that will help improve water quality and wildlife habitat.
