River Blockade

Those evil invader fish are on the move again! This week the Sanitary & Ship Canal will be closed to boat traffic as the Illinois DNR begins poisoning all fish in a six-mile stretch of the canal near the electric fence above the Lockport Dam.

Recently, DNA evidence of Asian Carp was discovered upstream of the electric barricade in several Lake Michigan harbors. The voracious eating habits of these invasive fish threatens other fish and the balance of the entire Great Lakes ecosystem.
