Researchers Say Grass Carp Spawning In Sandusky River

Researchers in the Great Lakes region have found new evidence that invasive Grass Carp are spawning near the mouth of the Sandusky River, a Lake Erie tributary. The discovery of more Grass Carp eggs this summer in the river points to what some scientists believe is a growing danger. Grass Carp are one of four Asian carp species threatening the Great Lakes. The next step for researchers is figuring out how to stop Grass Carp from gaining a foothold. Plans are being developed to make an intensive effort to remove the carp from the river next year.
