BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Asian Carp have now been spotted beyond an electrical barrierthat was intended to keep them out of the Great Lakes.
News 4's George Richert gave us a first glimpse of these flyinghungry fish back in May. Now they are closer than ever before.
Jennifer Nambone of Great Lakes United said, "They are extremelyhungry fish. They eat a tremendous amount of algae and planktonwhich is the basis of the food chain. So what you may see is acollapse in the food chain in Lake Erie."
If the carp make it all the way into the Great Lakes they willtarget the Walleye and Smallmouth Bass populations.
Marine Scientists and legislators are working quickly to tryand stop these fish, but it may already be too late.
