Michigan is turning to the public to help in their fight against a carp that is putting other fish in the Great Lakes in danger. The fish that Michigan and other states in the Great Lakes are nervous about is the Asian Carp. The Asian carp is making people nervous in our area because it could do serious damage to Michigan’s $38 billion tourism economy and the Great Lakes region’s $7 billion fishing industry.

Michigan’s Legislature and governor have put away $1 million to develop a global invasive carp challenge. Details on how much prize money will be offered are being worked out. Officials also haven’t determined how many winners might be chosen.

The challenge will go live this summer in collaboration with crowdsourcing company. Researchers are saying that they are doing their own experiments but it takes years and most are only in their beginning stages.
