Flood News Got You Down? How About the Latest on Carp?

May 20, 2011Patrick NunnallyUncategorizedComments Off on Flood News Got You Down? How About the Latest on Carp?

The vexing problem of “controlling” the Mississippi River and the ecological systems within the water is not limited just to the Delta.

As this story makes clear, river managers upstream continue to express concern about the potential spread of Asian carp.

Taken together, it looks like river managers are going to have to be part ecologist, part engineer, part community development specialist, part public information manager (“manage the story”) and part magician.

With a good deal of luck thrown in, for good measure!
