Where are Asian carp found in the United States?

Asian carp are found in the great rivers of the central United States, especially in the Missouri, Illinois, and Mississippi Rivers. Bighead and silver carp are not known to be established outside the greater Mississippi and Mobile River basins, though individuals have been captured in many locations. However, experts are quite concerned about the risk of invasion by this species to other waterways in the United States, including the Great Lakes.
