Asian carp, part two – Separate the systems?

  #

(CHICAGO) While Asian carp apparently have not established themselves in the Great Lakes, the fish are about to spark a significant change in a barrier near Chicago. The non-native carp are also triggering a major debate over whether to change water systems in the Midwest.
