  1. The feds are building on obstacle course for the Asian Carp, barriers, electricity, bubbles, noise, lights, all very expensive, all only putting whatever “control” in one spot, none reducing the population. Google (Biotic-Resistance on the increase) We have native predators for all invasive species including Asian carp. High densities of native predators, turn the entire area, lake, river, what have you into a “control” not just one spot. Restoration of Native fish/predators does not interfere with any other Asian Carp plans, is part of the plan, is an environmentally friendly invasive control. We can be restoring native fish, while the politics play out.
