Asian Carp Still Top Of Mind

When traveling across the district, Congressman Fred Upton says the public's issue of protecting the Great Lakes from Asian Carp is always being brought to his attention.



He calls the Asian Carp a "monster" which has the capability of spawning millions of eggs, getting up to 100-pounds in size, and eating the equivalent of 40% of its own body weight each day. Since a budget was approved last fall Congress now has money to try and stop the fish from entering the Great Lakes.



Upton says the Michigan delegation will work "shoulder to shoulder" with the other Great Lakes states to get this done.
