30-Pound Invasive Carp Caught On St. Croix River
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reporting that a fisherman caught a 30-pound bighead carp at the mouth of the St. Croix River near Prescott, Wisconsin.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported that about a dozen bighead and silver carp have been caught in the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers since 1996.
State officials are trying to come up with a solution to the increasing number of invasive Asian carp in local waters that could harm the natural environment.
