The invasive fish continue to spread throughout Missouri waters, threatening native species.



CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) fisheries management biologists recently confirmed the presence of silver carp, one of three species of invasive Asian carp, in the Black River just below the Clearwater Lake Dam near Piedmont.
"We knew Asian carp were numerous in the lower Black River near the confluence with the White River," said Paul Cieslewicz, MDC fisheries management biologist. "This is the first we've seen or heard of them being near Clearwater Lake."
