What’s happening: It’s time to take action to dramatically reduce Asian Carp in Kentucky and Tennessee and later in other states! The Tennessee and Cumberland rivers and reservoirs are inundated with Asian Carp. Fishing, boating and major tourism attractions in Kentucky and Barkley lakes are already being negatively impacted.
Congressman James Comer is supporting our effort to request money from Congress specifically for Kentucky and Tennessee. Our goal is to dramatically reduce carp in our waters by subsidizing the price per pound for Asian Carp and to provide ice and transportation to markets from the lake for commercial fisherman. We plan to conduct more research to find better ways to remove carp as well as test and possibly purchase acoustic barrier systems to deter carp from moving further up river systems through our dams. We succeed if we all do this together.
