Kentucky wildlife officials trying new Asian carp control
GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) – A fishing method originally developed in China will be used to remove invasive Asian carp from Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.
The “unified method” of fishing drives carp through a series of large nets into a containment area, where they can be harvested, said Kevin Irons, aquatic species program manager with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
Irons has traveled to China to talk with fisherman about their methods. He also helped coordinate a successful harvest in Illinois using the unified method.
