I consider “one” of any invasive specie too many!


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

I attended the DNRE Asian carp Workshop Nov. 22 in Lansing. It was at best a pony show, lot of talk, no substance. They said they didn't want a wide release of the plan because it's a work in process, yet it was stated that in one group, they were told that's the plan. I urge all of you to go to MDNRE website and read it for yourselves; they spent your money on it.

The "plan" is nothing more than another study; there is nothing in there that threatens the Asian carp population or any other invasive species for that matter. Their main concern is the pressure they will get from us, when Asian Carp are found here. Do we kill a whole river, if we find one carp? How many justifies killing?

Of course they want a study. If they focused their attention on getting rid of Asian carp and invasive species, they wouldn't get pressure from us! In an MPRN article regarding the workshop, they say there will be a plan in three years. I quote "Humphries says right now the Department is working on a carp prevention and management plan, and it's not currently a crisis."

You have to tell the truth about what the problem is in order to fix a problem, and I can't seem to find anyone with the ability to tell the truth.

Call me when the Asian carp get to whatever they consider a "crisis" level. I consider ONE of any invasive specie too many!

For the record, the Natural, Ecosystem has to win this fight, not any one group.
