    The Great Lakes are in danger of being infested with the 2 invasive Asian carp species the silver carp and the bighead carp. These carp get extremely large and reproduce at a prolific rate. They consume vast amounts of food and could likely choke out native species if they were to get into the great lakes. These carp have been found in the Illinois River which connects to Lake Michigan. If they were to reach the Great Lakes they could pose a significant threat on the Great Lakes ecosystems.
