Wabash River current helps slow spread of Asian carp

LAFAYETTE, Ind. – State officials say the lack of dams along the Wabash River is helping to slow the spread of the Asian carp in Indiana, but they are still looking for ways to control the invasive species.

An expert in aquatics and invasive species with the state Department of Natural Resources told the Journal & Courier (http://on.jconline.com/TZfTYK ) the Wabash River isn’t conducive to the spread of the invasive species because the current is steady and strong in places.

Officials are looking for native species that feed on carp and toxins and possibly even commercial fishing as potential solutions, but also are hoping that some federal money will be made available to help combat the problem.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said the federal government should provide grants to states.
