Asian Carp Invade Rivers

This could be a big year for Asian carp in South Dakota rivers, and that could be bad news for boaters and fishermen. Sam Stukel with the Game, Fish and Parks Department (based in Yankton) has been tracking movements of the fish the past few years…

Those carp, also known as silver carp can grow very large, and have a tendency to jump out of the water when they hear boat motors, in some cases injuring those in the boats. Stukel says if those fish spawn, next year would be even worse…

Stukel says some of the good news is that the fish have not spread beyond Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River…

The fish have spread up the James, Vermillion and Big Sioux Rivers.
