In the news: Canada pledges funds in the fight against Asian carp

The Canadian government has pledged a significant amount of money to help prevent Asian carp from getting into the Great Lakes. 

From The Windsor Star: 
“Part of the new Canadian initiative also involves working closely with U.S. officials to not only deal with any sign of carp in the Great Lakes but to also intercept the cross-border transport of live Asian carp - something that's already been a problem at the Detroit-Windsor border.

For both Canada and the U.S., the worst-case scenario would see the destructive carp dominating fresh water lakes and rivers.”
