As we begin 2013, I think it's important to note that the Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee (ACRCC) made significant progress in 2012 along a number of fronts in our efforts to prevent Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes. For example, the electrical dispersal barriers are now operating at optimal parameters; no new live Asian carp have been found in the CAWS above the electric dispersal barriers, with over 40,000 hours of netting, electrofishing, and keen observation by experienced fisheries biologists; and we're making advances on efforts to identify technologies to control or eradicate Asian carp.
