Carpe Diem: A Fishy Tale (2013)|
North America is under attack by a relentless aquatic invader. Accidentally released into the Mississippi River 30 years ago, the Asian carp have been heading north ever since, spreading all over the United States.
Armed with genetic super powers, they wipe out native species, alter the food web, and keep humans on the shoreline. Asian carp are now only 60 miles south of Lake Michigan and the race is on to prevent them from taking over the Great Lakes. Can they be stopped?
Carpe Diem: A Fishy Tale looks at the threat of this fish, and the scientific and unorthodox methods being in utilized in this war against the Asian carp.
Water guns, electric barriers and super sexy foods are all options being looked at to combat the spread of these crafty fish. But when all fails, why not shoot them or eat them? Decide for yourself what the best option is in solving this fishy problem!
Asian carp have invaded the Mississippi River, and destroyed its lucrative fishing industry. Today, only an electric fence is keeping them from entering the Great Lakes, and a few have already been spotted. If any more cross that barrier, prepare for Carpageddon. The Water Brothers find out what an Asian carp invasion could do to the Great Lakes' 4.5 billion dollar fishing economy and examine how other invasive species like zebra mussels have changed the Great Lakes ecosystem.
