Asian Carp Still A Problem

Asian carp, also known as silver or jumping carp is an invasive species that have been multiplying in the Missouri, James and Big Sioux Rivers the past few years.

Sam Stukel, with the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department, says they had some hope of a population decline earlier this year…

 

Stukel says you can still see large numbers of fish in the river below Gavins Point Dam…

 

The fish have caused injuries when they jump as boats move on the river.

Stukel says they have been watching to see if the population will increase in the area…

 

Stukel says there is no effective control for the nuisance fish.
