Minnesota Outdoor News | Bighead caught in St. Croix underscores urgency around Asian carp, 24 April 2012 [cached]
"This latest discovery - the third in the last year - underscores the urgency surrounding Asian carp," said Steve Hirsch, director of DNR's Division of Ecological and Water Resources. "These invaders have huge potential to wreak havoc on Minnesota's fisheries and aquatic ecosystems, so we need to do everything we can to stop them from spreading, and we need to do it now."
Hirsch said the highest priority action now is for Congress to authorize closure of the lock at Upper St. Anthony Falls. Bills to that effect have been introduced by Sen.

Minnesota can still learn from the experience of other states that have dealt with the invasive carp, said Steve Hirsch, the DNR's Eco-Waters Division director.
"The situation is urgent," Hirsch said. In the southern states, he said, "As these fish moved up they went through a period like what we're going through now where they would occasional see big fish and it would start to become more and more common and it seems like they reach a threshold and then they start reproducing and they become abundant."
Asian carp have the potential to out-compete native fish for food, Hirsch said.

Steve Hirsch, Director of the Minnesota DNR's Division of Ecological Resources Management Team, nominated the CRWD for the award, noting, among numerous efforts, the CRWD staff's work on alternative, agricultural drainage demonstration projects with the University of Minnesota and other groups, including a two-stage ditch near Adams and a surge basin near Grand Meadow.
The CRWD also is involved in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Mississippi River Basin Initiative focused on water quality and has coordinated two study contracts for the Cedar Basin, with a third contract coming soon for implementing a strategy for the Cedar River Watershed, Hirsch said.
"From the perspective of illustrating how the land conservation work of the [Soil & Water Conservation Districts] can be coordinated with the water management work of the [watershed districts] - this group in Austin is showing us all how it can be done," Hirsch said at the MAWD event.
Hirsch called the CRWD a "very good partner over years," and, given this partnership, the DNR recently extended a general permit to the CRWD for numerous types of projects proposed in public waters, helping the DNR with its workload. These types of projects include streambank stabilization, excavation and filling, bridges, culverts, intakes, outfalls and low-water crossings.
"They have also been trying to come up with many different ways to lessen flooding in Austin, and we continue to work with them on this major historic issue," Hirsch said.
