Asian Carp Could Take Big Bite Out Of Great Lakes Foot Chain

Alliance for the Great Lakes President Joel Brammeier says Asian Carp can eat about five to fifteen percent of their body weight every day.


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a report Monday with ways to keep the invasive species out of the Great Lakes. They suggest building barriers to separate the Lakes from the Mississippi River basin, use locks, use electric barriers, or treat the water with chemicals. One of the suggested projects could cost $18-billion and take 25-years to complete.
