LANSING — Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and the Michigan Legislature have authorized $1 million to launch what they’re calling a global search to find the best solutions to keep invasive bighead, silver and black carp out of the Great Lakes.
They’re calling it, ‘The Michigan Invasive Carp Challenge.’ State officials say that these fish are within ten miles of entering Lake Michigan.
The fish can grow to be over 100 lbs. and could destroy the state’s $7 billion finishing industry. If you’re interested in submitting a proposal to the state, you can find that information by clicking HERE.
