Invasive Species- Grass Carp- INFO

Grass Carp pose significant ecological threats to the Great Lakes and connected fisheries through aggressive feeding and removal of aquatic vegetation. This results in loss of habitat for other species. Per day, one grass carp consumes up to 40% of their body weight.. With an average of 25kg growing all the way up to 45kg (99lbs) per fish. This degradation affects not only all of our favourite fish, but birds and other wetland creatures as well. 
I’ve attached a photo of this fish to help you identify it. If you come across one of these grass carp, it is illegal not to report it and/or remove it. As anglers it’s important for us to watch out for these things.
