• 2014 Asian Carp Control Strategy Framework Released

    The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee (ACRCC) announced a coordinated strategy to protect the Great Lakes from silver and bighead carp, building on previous efforts to prevent self-sustaining populations from becoming established in the Great Lakes. The 2014 Asian Carp Control Strategy Framework introduces several new initiatives, including testing and deploying new physical and chemical control tools, constructing a new electric barrier in the Chicago Area Waterway System, and building a project to physically separate the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins at Eagle Marsh near Fort Wayne, Ind.
