A new front in the war against Asian carp in the Great Lakes


The Chicago locks aren’t the only entry threat for invasive Asian carp entering the Great Lakes watershed:

Yang, 52, the owner of a fish import company, pleaded guilty this week in Windsor to violating the federal Fisheries Act, and was ordered to pay a $50,000 fine. He was stopped Nov. 4 after crossing the Ambassador Bridge into Canada.

Yang paid a $40,000 fine in 2006 for a similar offense.

He was busted for trying to transport “4,000 pounds of prohibited bighead and grass carp apparently bound for consumer markets in Toronto” that he picked up down south via Michigan.

His second offense.

I’m just sayin’…
