Minnesota may be relatively free of invading Asian carp
ST. PAUL -- A new study shows it now appears large numbers of Asian carp are not in Minnesota.
A technique that found indications of tiny amounts of Asian carp DNA had appeared to indicate the invasive species could be in the state’s streams.
The new report released today, called the most rigorous Minnesota study of the issue, showed that silver carp likely are in Iowa, but it found no evidence the fish is in Minnesota. No bighead carp DNA was found in Iowa or Minnesota.
