Face of nightmares

New details are available to you on the Asian carp species threatening the Great Lakes.

A new report by the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network looks at the possible impacts if the carps invade the lakes, identifies gaps in what’s known about the fish, and provides extensive educational materials for teachers, scientists, anglers and others — anyone with an interest in keeping the Great Lakes, including Lake Erie, healthy — for communicating the threat to the public.

Ohio State’s Ohio Sea Grant program is one of the network’s collaborators. Read Sea Grant’s press release about the report.
