How many Asian carp are thought to be in the great lakes?



  1. 0 Votes

    These types of carp (the bighead and silver carp) are not thought to have reached the Great Lakes at this time. However, they would wreck the ecosystem if they did. This is because they consume large amounts of food, growing up to 100 pounds and up to four feet in length. They also reproduce rapidly. Because of this threat, electric barriers have been constructed to help keep them out of the Great Lakes.

    It’s too soon to tell, but it has been found that the Asian carp have already slipped passed the electric barriers that were designed to keep them out of the great lakes. They have also already infested the waterways that lead into the great lakes. If these Asian carp outnumber the other species that live in the great lakes, it could lead to an ecological disaster.
