Mind Boggling Carp Caper

leah kirk

The Outdoor Hub reports that the Illinois Department of Natural Resources set out recently to fight against a possible upstream range expansion of black carp in the Illinois River and, while no black carp were caught, the IDNR is reporting they have removed over 70,000 pounds of Asian carp from the Illinois River.

Go ahead and think about that for a minute, 70,239 pounds to be exact, and that’s nearly equivalent to a bulldozer, or a whole heard of elephants. Your brain might not be able to comprehend this . . .

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources set out recently to fight against a possible upstream range expansion of black carp in the Illinois River and, while no black carp were caught, the IDNR is reporting they have removed over 70,000 pounds of Asian carp from the Illinois River.

Over the past three weeks, IDNR-contracted commercial fishermen deployed a series of hoop nets in the Starved Rock and Marseilles Pools of the Illinois River in response to a possible Black Carp upstream range expansion. While no Black Carp were caught, timing and potential spawning conditions led to an impressive catch and removal of 70,239 lbs. of Asian carp. That staggering number is enough to send a shiver down your spine when you think about this dark cloud of invasive fish creeping closer and closer to the Great Lakes. There have been many possible solutions tossed out there to help eliminate the threat these fish pose, but overall, this carp extraction was a huge success.
