Flying carp heading north
With the catch of a silver carp near Winona, Minn, by commercial fisherman, the concern about that invasive species has made headlines throughout the upper Midwest. What does this mean for the St. Croix River? To date, there have only been two Asian carp found in the St. Croix, one in 1996 and one in 2011 which were both big head carp.
A DNA test showed silver carp DNA in the St. Croix River below the St. Croix Falls Dam.
