About this Demo

An invading alien species with a voracious appetite…it's not the promo for a sci-fi thriller, but the facts about a non-indigenous species taking over large aquatic territories along the Mississippi watershed, and on the brink of entering the Great Lakes.

Asian Carp (both “silver” and “bighead” carp) are showing up in crucial locations in and around the Midwest. This demo shows some stark data about the current efforts to contain their expansion, and also some historic and complementary data related to the impact of invasive species on the Great Lakes.
