• Battling Asian Carp with Swords and Football Helmets

“One of the more vexing of invasive species, Asian carp were imported into the Southern United States to help keep fish farms clean, but in the 1970s, they made a break for the wild and have been wreaking havoc ever since.

”They are overwhelming the Mississippi and Illinois river systems, in some parts comprising more than 95 percent of the biomass.

”They cause ecological destruction, they harm people, and they are a potentially devastating threat to the Great Lakes.”
