The presence of reproducing invasive asian carp within the Great Lakes watershed has been confirmed. Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey and Bowling Green State University have found evidence of grass carp, which were captured last year in the Sandusky River located in Ohio, a tributary of Lake Erie, which have spent their entire lives in the river. This indicates that spawning of these species is occurring closer to the Great Lakes than previously confirmed.
