How to identify juvenile Asian carp

The Fisheries Division in collaboration with the AIS core team and Michigan-out-of-doors TV has developed and produced an education and outreach video that focuses on identification of juvenile Asian carp. The overall message of the video is to increase awareness of a potential pathway for the introduction of these detrimental invasive species that the common angler can relate with. The filming and editing of the juvenile Asian carp identification video has been completed. Please feel free to distribute the video to anyone that may be interested in the content. The video has been posted to the Michigan DNR’s Asian carp webpage as well so you can find it on there under the videos section.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone that assisted with the project whether it be in the development stage or tracking down fish specimens for the filming.

Thanks,
