In the small town of Bath, Illinois, a little more than miles southwest of Chicago, an annual competition to catch flying fish draws visitors from near and far. The invasive species is traveling up the Mississippi River watershed and its tributaries, like the Illinois River, threatening the freshwater ecosystem of Lake Michigan by outcompeting native fish for food. Silver carp's "startle response" is jumping out of the water due to the noise and pressure waves caused by boat motors. Fish biologist Jan Hoover from the U. Army Engineer Research and Development Center was at the event studying specimen by collecting bone samples to age the fish and examining ovaries to learn more about their reproductive cycles.

Deal reached on project to protect lakes from invasive fish
Asian carp processing facility might be headed to North Peoria location
On a bleak and biting December morning, a team of state-contracted commercial fishermen at Starved Rock Marina slipped into their waders, salted down their johnboats to protect against ice and launched onto the Illinois River. Armed with thousands of yards of netting, the fleet set course for a cove at Sheehan Island where they suspected a horde of silver and bighead carp, the most abundant and worrisome species of invasive Asian carp, were holed up for the winter. Within less than a half hour, the fishermen transformed the inlet, which is big enough to hold Millennium Park, into an enormous booby trap, layering netting from the shores to the mouth of the bay. Once they were finished, the stillness of the muted winter morning was broken by the fishermen collectively revving their motors, driving frenzied Asian carp into the nets. While state and federal officials debate costly preventive measures, unreliable electrical barriers near Romeoville serve as the last rampart blocking these Asian carp from entering the Great Lakes.
Illinois Distributor to Offer Asian Carp
In a shift from his predecessor, Gov. Army Corps of Engineers last month he generally supported plans to block invasive carp at a strategic lock and dam near Chicago. In recent months, Illinois, Wisconsin and other Great Lakes states have written the Corps about the urgency of building a system to control carp at the Brandon Road lock and dam near Joliet, a key choke point. But it has yet to formally agree to do so.
Charmayne Anderson, a graduate student from Western Illinois University, holds one of the larger Bighead carp caught in a lake in Morris, Illinois. Wildlife agencies and fishermen in Illinois are using a Chinese technique to catch Asian carp, an invasive fish species threatening the Great Lakes ecosystem. In one day, an Asian carp can eat 20 percent of its body weight, which can reach a whopping pounds. The fish deplete waters of necessary food, like plankton, for other aquatic life.
