STOP INVASIVE CARP

Invasive carp have devastated iconic fisheries throughout the country and now threaten the Great Lakes and their connected inland lakes and rivers, too. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has a plan to stop them, though, by building a multi-layered barrier at a choke point on the Illinois River – the Brandon Road Lock & Dam – to prevent them from getting to Lake Michigan through Chicago. That’s why over 200 hunting, fishing, and conservation organizations support this plan. Watch “Against The Current” to learn how invasive carp threaten our fisheries, economies, and way of life, and what’s being done to stop them!

We need to maintain and increase funding for solutions to reduce Asian carp populations where they already exist and halt their advance upstream, such as those provided through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

Great Lakes Conservation Coalition

The Great Lakes Conservation Coalition is an informal affiliation of conservation groups working in the Great Lakes region and collectively representing millions of hunters and anglers.

Together with our partners, we are committed to stopping Asian carp from invading our waters in the Great Lakes and reducing their populations wherever they are found around the country.
