SIU Experiments with Asian Carp

Nov 28, 2012

Southern Illinois University researchers are conducting what is probably one of the largest ecosystem research experiments ever attempted -- the harvesting of 3-Million Asian Carp from the Illinois River. 

As Eileen Waldron reports, their goal is to see if fewer fish down-stream would decrease the threat to Lake Michigan.  The research team is also experimenting with turning the carp into fishmeal.
