Mich. DNR fishing for asian carp
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michgan's DNR is going fishing.
The organization has closed about two miles of the St. Joseph River for field testing in the event Asian carp are discovered in the state's waterways.
The two-day exercise is sponsored by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
More than 30 employees are taking part, netting and electro-fishing in the river.
The DNR says the St. Joseph River was chosen based on the likelihood of it being the first entry point of invasion from the fish.
