Invasion of the Fish Snatchers - Giant Carp Are Coming


For months now, environmental conservationists have been sounding the alarm about an aggressive invader to the Great Lakes ecosystem. Asian carp can grow to huge and dangerous proportions; they eat everything in sight and they've made their way into Chicago's waterways, literally to the door of the Great Lakes. Many fear that if they make it to Lake Michigan, they'll change the Great Lakes irrevocably. Why the big fuss over some fish? Find out Wednesday morning at 9, as host Dan Moulthrop and guests discuss the newest Great Lakes invader.Peter Annin, Author, The Great Lakes Water Wars
