Asian-Carp-jumping-sm.jpgA new study out says that to prevent the migration of the invasive species, like Asian Carp, from moving into the Great Lakes is to separate the lakes from the Mississippi River. But not everyone agrees. The paper, published in the Journal of Great Lakes Research by a team of scientists, says opponents to the idea of separating the waterways at the man-made link were spreading false statements, but the opponents think cutting off the flow of water will hurt business and the economy. Either way, the problem needs to be solved and it's a matter of how and how quickly. [Trib]
