So, I have been doing a lot of research about the asian carp for an upcoming English paper. I was struck by the enormity of the problem faced by the government . Its a tough choice for them, they can either maintain the economy of the states or save one of the largest freshwater ecosystems. In the past few years the Great Lakes have been under the threat of many invasive species, and each of them have affected the native species in the lakes in an adverse way. Lets hope they make the correct choice.
