The Fight Against Asian Carp: Saving Jobs and Protecting Our Ecology
Attorney General Schuette is working with allies nationwide to drive immediate
action by the federal government to stop the spread of invasive Asian carp to
the Great Lakes. An Asian carp invasion would devastate the $7 billion per year
Great Lakes recreational fishing industry and result in the loss of jobs when
Michigan can least afford it. The threat is real and Attorney General Schuette
is working on multiple fronts to protect the ecology and economy of Great Lakes.
The solution is a permanent long-term ecological separation between the Great
Lakes and Mississippi River basin.
