Will we be just one big carp pond?


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

Here some Asian Carp facts that may interest you. According to Chinese experts, Asian Carp only require some current to spawn, no mention of any miles. At their expert panel meeting after the big "kill" they say Asian carp have spawned in two lakes in China, no current needed, they can do it here too.

Also Asian carp eat zebra mussel veligers, Most don't know, baby zebra and quagga mussels swim around for a while, basically a swimming piece of protein just like zooplankton, just a different name, and given 500 trillion zebra and quagga mussels in Lake Michigan spewing out babies, they've got food.

Asian carp learned how to root around in the mud for food, bugs and protein! They adapted, plugging one hole in Chicago does not stop the Asian carp spread. At the Ypsilanti meeting the Rep. for the Corps of engineers said the Asian carp are forty miles from Lake Michigan, in 2002 bighead Asian carp were found 20 miles from Lake Michigan, but what you probably don't know, the barrier is 25 miles from Lake Michigan.

Rebuilding our native perch and walleye does not interfere in any way with their plans to close the locks, bubbles, noise etc... There is no down side to having more perch and walleye, in case their bubble thing doesn't work out. We need to start now, because if they're in the lake, and if we do nothing, we've got a big carp pond!
