Invasive Species in the Great Lakes: Asian Carp

With our business headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, Lake Erie is near and dear to us. There have been a lot of reports over the years about the invasive species that are showing up in the lake. In fact, there are at least 25 invasive species in the Great Lakes today. 

One of the species that is a hot topic currently is Asian carp, and many people who care about the Great Lakes are looking for ways to keep Asian carp out because they threaten the fishing industry and economy.

On Monday, January 13th the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released their study on the best options for doing just that. In the report they outline eight options that will help to prevent thirteen invasive species, including Asian carp, from disrupting the Great Lakes. The options range in price, from no new cost to over $18 billion dollars. 

In the video below, published by PBS NewsHour, they discuss an old fashioned way that may work to prevent the spread of the Asian carp into the Great Lakes.
