Actions Underway to Stop Asian Carp Entering the Great Lakes

One of the most destructive invasive species in North America is knocking at the door of the Great Lakes. Asian carp (the designation which consists of silver carp, bighead carp, grass carp, and black carp) reproduce rapidly, monopolize food sources, push out native species, and even injure boaters. If they enter the Great Lakes, the basin’s ecosystem and economy will never be the same.

This is primarily a US issue and funding is in place to counter this threat. GBA has compiled an update on what is currently happening to stop the spread of grass carp outside of Lake Erie and stop other Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes. Read the update here.
