It's not national news, but here in the Chicago area the threat of Asian Carp getting into Lake Michigan is a BIG NEWS ITEM. It has been said that this fish can wipe out the entire fishing eco-system in all of the Great Lakes. The USACE decided to poison a 6 mile stretch of waterway between an area and Lake Michigan , which would be the path from the Mississippi River to the locks which allow access to Lake Michigan. It has been reported that of thousands of fish killed only 1 of them was the targeted Carp that floated topside.
Do you feel this money could been better spent to promote improved fishing conditions in your areas? Or was this a good move overall to protect fishing in The Great Lakes region?
