Posted Sat Sep 29 2012: from GoErie:
Asian carp DNA found in Lake Erie, raising concerns
Tom Fuhrman calls the threat of Asian carp possibly invading the Great Lakes and Lake Erie "the scariest invasive thing we've faced.'' "This is the big one,'' said Fuhrman, president of the Lake Erie Region Conservancy. "If we don't control this, we're in trouble. This will change the whole game.''... Flooding allowed Asian carp to escape into the Mississippi River and move upriver. The invasive species has migrated north into tributaries, like the Illinois River, and toward the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, Fuhrman said.... "It's hard to imagine how the native fish species would compete with the carp,'' Fuhrman said. "They're going to be the 800-pound gorilla.''
