Report: Preventing Invasive Species In The Great Lakes

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - After a new report from the US Army Core of Engineers, 6 News spoke to representative Dave Camp about invasive species in the great lakes.

The report details a plan to prevent species, like Asian Carp from entering the lakes.

The study represents a multi-year investigation. It recommends installing a system of technical and physical barriers at four locations at the Chicago Sanitary and other channels into great lakes.

Asian Carp is a serious threat to their eco-system and the region's boating and fishing industry.

"We need to solve it sooner rather than later. Asian carp - E DNA - Asian Carp DNA has been found in all the great lakes. Obviously it can get there in a number of ways. But that causes more concern and that's why it's such a critical issue," said Representative Damp Camp, (R), Midland.
