Sturgeon Bay says Asian Carp control needed to protect smallmouth bass stocks

Sturgeon Bay City Administrator Josh Vanlieshout favors any measure that would keep the Asian Carp out of the Great Lakes system.  That comes after members of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative called on the federal government to make stronger investments when creating Asian Carp barriers. Those calls came from U.S. and Canadian mayors at the group's annual meeting in Sheboygan. Van Lieshout supports those sentiments and anything else that can protect recreational fishing that attracts visitors to Sturgeon Bay.

 

Members of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative specifically want more money spent on carp control efforts at a dam southwest of Chicago which is a direct link between the Mississippi River and Lake Michigan.
