The Fish Menace

Just found this article in last year's New Yorker. Ian Frazier writes a travelogue of a journey following the invasive bighead and silver carp up the Illinois River. There's an amusing stop at the Redneck Fishing Tournament, a visit to the electric fish barrier in Romeoville, and an explanation of the DNA evidence that fish may have crossed the barrier.
