This webinar will be an overview and history of Asian carp and their management in the United States. From their introductions in the 1970's, 80's, and 90's, to their proliferation in Midwestern rivers today, Asian carp have become one of the most widely known invasive species in the eyes of the American public. The jumping behavior of the silver carp as well as the contentious and highly publicized issues in keeping these fish out of the Great Lakes has given them prominence for the media, scientists, and the public. Topics covered will include the history of the introductions, their life history and deleterious effects, and what is or can be done to control the species in the United States, with a particular focus on the magnitude of efforts that have been underway to keep the fish out if the Great Lakes.
