Agencies report to Congress on Asian carp control efforts

There are several federal agencies in charge of trying to control Asian carp, and they just came out with their latest report to Congress on how those efforts are going.

Charlie Wooley is the Midwest Deputy Regional Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He says this report focuses on the upper Mississippi River and the Ohio River basins.

“What we saw was that unfortunately, we have had movement of adult silver carp up the Ohio River, getting closer and closer towards Pennsylvania,” says Wooley.  Click on the following sentence to access the full story.
