One Fish Among Thousands

The poisoning of the Sanitary & Shipping Canal continues today, with thousands of fish popping up dead, and only one specimen of the notorious Asian Carp. Yesterday 2200 gallons of the pesticide Rotenone were dumped into the canal near the electric fence just above the Lockport Dam, to make sure none of the invasive fish swam upstream while the Army Corps of Engineers made repairs and upgrades to the electric barrier.
