Here comes the carp

 

Several federal agencies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are still at least four years away from having recommendations to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow tells the Detroit Free Press members of Congress learned the time-line Wednesday, and she's upset, saying four years is too long. Two Asian carp were found in the Illinois River 12 miles closer to Lake Michigan last week than ever before, and the fish have moved 66 miles closer to the shore since the start of this year. It's feared if the carp get into the Great Lakes, they will decimate the commercial fishing industry and destroy the ecosystem.
