Plan to End Threat of Asian carp to Lake Erie

After four long years of study, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently released a comprehensive plan to ease the dire threat to our Great Lakes region posed by a supersized enemy fish.

That aquatic terrorist is better known as the invasive Asian carp, which can weigh up to 100 pounds and leap up to 10 feet into the air. It’s aptly labeled an “injurious species” by the U.S. Department of the Interior.

They’ve seriously injured legions of boaters and fishermen, they’ve pillaged the natural food chain of critical aquatic life, and they’ve threatened to destroy the viability of the lake’s $7 billion fishing industry and $15 billion boating industry, let alone the purity of drinking water for 35 million Americans.

The Great Lakes Commission and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative call the carp the greatest damaging invasive species that has entered the Great Lakes in the last 100 years.

After four long years of study, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently released a comprehensive plan to ease the dire threat to our Great Lakes region posed by a supersized enemy fish. The Corps proposes installing a massive network of electrical fences, noise generators and water jets at a dam near Chicago to keep the Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.

Government Shut-Down Leads to Weed Infested Waters - Due to a government shut-down, many Minnesota Lakes are becoming infested with weeds resulting in the inability to use the waters for recreation. Permits to harvest invasive weeds, which are issued by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, have been suspended because no one from the state is available to oversee the work. Normally, three weed harvesters would be cutting milfoil on Lake Minnetonka and another would be cutting weeds on Lake Calhoun. All of which has been suspended.
