[ATG] Attorney General’s statement on federal Asian carp plan
Start Date: 7/24/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 7/24/2013
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Today the federal government issued its plan for preventing invasive Asian carp from becoming established in the Great Lakes and controlling them in other waterways.  Last week, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller made a tour and inspection of portions of the Wabash River in Indiana, accompanied part of the distance by John Goss, the federal director of the Regional Asian Carp Coordinating Committee.  The coordinating committee’s plan, the Asian Carp Control Strategy Framework, was issued today, and Zoeller issued this statement about it:

 

“We appreciate the assistance from Washington D.C. and especially the insightful efforts of Director John Goss, a native Hoosier who is an expert on this invasive species problem.  The proliferation of Asian carp threatens the sportfishing industry in the Wabash River and other waterways, and as the lawyer for state government, I want to ensure that Indiana’s concerns are taken into account as the federal government moves forward with its carp control efforts,” Zoeller said.
