Asian carp problem in illinois river
You find more carp per acre, per mile of river than nearly anyplace else in the world. The water here is loaded with food due to farm runoff. Throughout the year, teams from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources use a specially equipped shock boat to keep close tabs on the Asian carp population. Irons says native species have thinned out. The bigger Asian carp species here- black heads- can weigh twice that. The DNR team tests known hotspots on the Illinois River and tributaries to check for changes, documenting with their own video for analyzation and comparison.

Invasion of the Asian Carp
All are fast growing and prolific feeders that out-compete native fish and leave a trail of environmental destruction in their wake. The four types of Asian carp currently found in the United States were imported into the country for use in aquaculture ponds. Through flooding and accidental releases, black, grass, bighead and silver carps found their way into the Mississippi River system. After decades of swimming northward, silver and bighead carps are now in the Illinois Waterway and within striking distance of Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes. Black carp are currently encroaching on the Illinois River, and ongoing research is revealing the growing threat of grass carp to Lake Erie.
Asian carp, that large, invasive fish known for leaping out of a river into boats when startled, now make up more than 60 percent of the total fish biomass in one of Illinois' major river systems, a research team led by Southern Illinois University Carbondale has found. But the team members' advice for controlling the species goes something like this: "If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em. James Garvey, director of the Fisheries and Illinois Aquaculture Center at SIU Carbondale, has led the effort that for the last 18 months to quantify and solve the Asian carp problem in the state's rivers. The report includes several major findings and strategies. Along with establishing that the carp now make up the majority of living tissue in the main channel of the Illinois River, it also found that eating the tasty, healthy, high-protein fish is plausible approach to greatly reducing its numbers.
