STOP ASIAN CARP
Asian 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 chokepoint on the Illinois River – the Brandon Road Lock & Dam – to prevent them from getting to Lake Michigan through Chicago. The plan is out for public comment right now, so tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers you support the plan to Stop Asian Carp!
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.
