Invasive carp’s DNA found in the Muskingum

Bighead carp DNA has been discovered in eastern Ohio’s Muskingum River, raising concerns the invasive fish might have found a new route to Lake Erie.

A report released Friday indicated the genetic material was found in 10 of 222 water samples taken from the river last fall, various news outlets reported.

Researchers found the DNA 80 miles upstream of the river’s mouth at Marietta, along the Ohio River. No fish have been found.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to conduct additional tests in the Muskingum in June.

Lets keep trading with China. It seems to really be great for our country. Invasive fish and bugs, poisoned tooth paste and pet food, sub-par products and the elimination of good American jobs. Tell me again why this is good for America?

I agree with you 100% billdog.
I strongly favor a total boycott on chinese goods and former American Cos'.who ran out on America in favor of chinese slave labor and no enviormental standards.

I'd like to see Americans demand retailers stock their stores with domestic goods.
Please stop sending your hard earned American dollars to china.

We have a choice when we shop. Start reading labels. Buy American.
