Asian Carp Invasion swimming its way into Pennsylvania waters

For decades the Asian Carp, an  invasive fish species has threatened the ecosystem of America’s Great Lakes. Now, the aggressive species is also making its way up the Ohio River.

Unless something is done to curb the spread of the creature that can grow up to 100-pounds, experts say it could potentially devastate the native species found in rivers and streams by devouring all of the underwater plan vegetation.

“It’s just a matter of time before this ravenous species reaches the Ohio River, killing thousands of native fish populations in the Ohio, as well as the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers and their tributaries despite federal and state agencies efforts,” said Gregory Paul, a Pittsburgh marine biologist and avid fisherman.

This is undoubtedly the most heroic and fulfilling enterprise that can be accomplished in this part of the states. If you don't like it that is fine. Just realize that without these management efforts by truly awesome individuals Asian carp will take over the entire Mississippi River ecosystem, as well as American jobs. Just imagine having to hire an Asian carp to mow your lawn. They would do a good job sure, and for half of the price, but is it worth it?
