Invasive silver and bighead carp are knocking at the gates of the Great Lakes. The fish have advanced through the Illinois Waterway to the Brandon Road Lock & Dam near Joliet, where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposes a $770 million gauntlet defense system. Army Corps staff and policy advocates from Illinois and Michigan met reporters with the Institute for Journalism and Natural Resources (IJNR) on Nov. 4-5 in Chicago to discuss existing control measures and next steps in the invasive species battle.
