Scientists say they have more proof the dreaded Asian carp is advancing on Lake Michigan.
Federal officials have laid out a plan for studying how to stop invasive species — including the voracious Asian carp — from migrating between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River watersheds.
It wants to catch and sell them as “wild Mississippi River fish.”
It also ask for rain barrels, wetlands, trees to block Asian Carp, alleviate basement flooding, clean up the Chicago River system at the same time.
Attorneys for and against closing Chicago-area shipping locks as a way to stop the spread of Asian carp are now making their final pitches to a federal judge.
