Great Lakes fisheries are the only ones worried about Asian Carp. Here’s a story from Kentucky:
The silver and bighead varieties of Asian carp, have made their way up the Ohio from the Mississippi River, and have also gotten into the popular Barkley and Kentucky lakes in western Kentucky.
The fear is that these Asian carp, which can grow to 100 pounds, will crowd out more desirable native fish like sauger, white bass, crappie and catfish that help support a nearly $1 billion a year recreational fishing industry in Kentucky. They are also causing problems for people who fish for a living.
