Asian Carp Integrated Control and Containment: Brandon Road Lock and Dam

Increased threat of Asian carp entering the Great Lakes and spreading to other basins such as the Upper Mississippi River and Ohio River basins, has led to increased prevention and control efforts since 2010. Successful management of this invasive species requires methods to contain future spread, reduce population levels, and minimize their effects. In collaboration with partners, USGS...

Asian Carp Integrated Control and Containment: Development of Carbon Dioxide as A Control Tool for Invasive Asian Carp Control

The objective of this project is to develop carbon dioxide (CO2) as a new tool for controlling Asian carp migration. More specifically, navigational structures are potential management pinch-points to block the spread of Asian carps within major rivers throughout the United States. Carbon dioxide has shown promise as a behavioral deterrent for Asian carps and could be a useful non-physical...
