Holy carp! Asian carp DNA found in Lake Erie

Scientists announced on Friday (the 13th) that they’ve detected Asian carp DNA in Lake Erie.

The samples were collected from the lake in August 2011 but just recently analyzed. A Notre Dame scientist who made the discovery said the most likely explanation was that live Asian carp have reached Lake Erie.

This is very ominous news. John Flesher of the Associated Press has a good summary of the discovery. Read it here.
