Cut the carp: Michigan fights invasive fish species

DETROIT — A group of federal agencies criticized in the past for failing to move quickly to stop Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes announced Friday that they’re taking every precaution to keep them out, even poisoning thousands of fish next month to prevent any leaping, dangerous bighead or silver carp from escaping the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. The carp are voracious feeders and breeders and eat all the plankton that other fish rely on.
