Conduct library/internet research into the reason why certain stakeholders who live near Lake Michigan are worried that Asian carp will get into the lake.

Jun 10th, 2015

On June 22, 2010, a 19-pound Asian carp was found near the shore of Lake Michigan, in Lake Calumet, about six miles downstream from Lake Michigan, by a commercial fisherman hired by the state of Illinois to do routine fish sampling in the area. The fish confirms DNA evidence that Asian carp have indeed breached the electric fish barrier on the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.

In May 2013, a test for silver carp eDNA in the waters of Sturgeon Bay in Lake Michigan near Green Bay, Wis. was positive. May is a month when the carp are active. The result was published in October and scientists will re-test in May, 2014
