What type of carp are invading the Great Lakes?



  1. 0 Votes

    Two invasive types of Asian carp, the bighead carp and the silver carp, pose a danger to the ecosystem of the Great Lakes. They have already had great reproductive success in the Mississippi, which they were able to enter when floods caused catfish farm ponds containing carp to overflow into the river. The carp were originally introduced to the US to eat unwanted algae from these ponds. Both species eat voraciously and reproduce quickly, and thus are a significant threat to the Great Lakes food chain.
