June 21 – History of Invasive Carp

There’s the story we hear on the news any time invasive carp threaten to break through the electric barriers put in place in Chicago to stop them from reaching the Great Lakes about how these voracious invasive fish arrived in North America – and then there’s the story we don’t know of what events led a cadre of fisheries experts from a small Arkansas county to import the continent’s most notorious invasive species. Andrew Reeves is an award winning environmental writer whose first book Overrun: Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis was reviewed everywhere from the Wall Street Journal to the Literary Review of Canada. (Note: The common name Asian carp has been changed to invasive carp).
