Comment On Asian-carp Dna In Lake Erie Spurs Search For Fish

A fish has yet to be found, but those fears were stoked by news that the DNA of two species of Asian carp was found in six water samples from Maumee and Sandusky bays. The discovery will prompt state and federal wildlife officials to start hunting for a fish they don’t want to find.
