How is TU responding to the Asian Carp issue in the Great Lakes?
Trout Unlimited is gravely concerned about the imminent threat of Asian Carp invading the Great Lakes. To date we have received anexcellent response from our members to an Alert to Action which pressured federal and state agencies to take the most aggressive action possible to prevent invasion. We are cooperating with many of the other Great Lakes organizations on sign-on letters to various congressional and federal administration officials requesting urgent action. We are also strategizing with our DC-based policy staff on the best places to apply pressure to ensure that Illinois gets the resources it needs, right now, to maintain aggressive high levels of monitoring, contro.We continue to pressure the Army of Corp of Engineers to move quickly on the plan to ecologically separate the Great Lakes and Mississippi systems.
