National Park Service Expert to Deliver Talk on Asian Carp in St. Cloud [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD – You might be aware of the giant fish starting to become more common in North American waterways.
They’re called Asian carp – they can weigh as much as 100 lbs, eat native plant and animal species, and leap great heights out of the water, creating the potential for harm to boaters and jet-skiers.
National Park Service Chief of Resource Management John Anfinson says these carp and their movement north to Minnesota is going to be a bigger problem than we realize.
Anfinson will lay out important details of the carp invasion in his talk in St. Cloud, “Carpzilla: Is the Mississippi River in Minnesota Next?”
It’s tomorrow from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the St. Cloud City Council Chambers.
