Scientists are warning that the invasive Asian carp is out there in our backyard, and that the only way to deal with it is to stop eating it.
That means protecting ourselves from the fish and its cousins, which are the carp’s primary predator, the Asian carp.
It also means making sure we eat what’s there.
A new study from the University of Michigan found that when Asian carp are introduced into new water systems, they kill more than 80 percent of native fish species, including many native fish that have long thrived in rivers.
That is an especially dangerous outcome for those species, which have evolved to compete with native fish.
“A lot of people think that if you just eat carp that’s all there is to it, but it’s not that simple,” said Andrew R. Lipp, an assistant professor of fisheries at Michigan State University who led the study.
He and his colleagues studied the impacts of Asian carp in Minnesota, a state that was hit hard by the Asian-carp infestation. “
Carp is a huge threat to the fish stocks that depend on them,” Lipp said.
He and his colleagues studied the impacts of Asian carp in Minnesota, a state that was hit hard by the Asian-carp infestation.
The study showed that Asian carp were killing native fish in a waterway where there was no native fish population.
That waterway, called the Mississippi River, feeds into two other waterways that feed into the Gulf of Mexico, the Great Lakes, and several other bodies of water.
The findings are the first to quantify how widespread Asian carp was in the Mississippi.
The researchers found that Asian carps were the main predators of native species in both Mississippi and the Gulf, as well as the only predators that killed native fish overall.
The team found that carp killed more native fish than native fish had in the past.
That was true even in areas where there were no carp.
“When you eat carp, you’re actually killing native species that are already living,” Litt said.
“That is something that is very worrying to me.”
Lipp also noted that there was a significant difference between the effects of carp and native fish: The carp killed native and introduced fish at a higher rate.
The fish killed by carp also ate native fish more quickly, with less time to develop a defense.
“If you are not eating native fish and you are eating carp, then you are in danger of killing your native fish,” he said.
Litt and his team analyzed fish caught and released into the Mississippi from mid-April to mid-July.
They found that native fish were killed more often in both the Mississippi and Gulf.
It’s important to note that native species are still found in the area.
There is a lot of research that’s done on native fish populations and fish diversity, but what we don’t know is what species are being killed and when.
It is estimated that there are as many as 500,000 fish species in North America, Lipp noted.
The Asian carp has been a threat to native fish for decades, but the researchers noted that this is the first time they have ever found that the Asian carp was killing native and reintroduced fish.
It could also be a problem for native fish because they can’t adapt to carp because they have to compete against the carp, which can kill more native species.
“It’s the largest threat to our native fish, which is native carp,” Lett said.
It will take more research to figure out exactly what’s causing the Asian fish to kill native fish so quickly, but Lipp and his collaborators are looking for clues.
One possibility could be that Asian fish have a more diverse diet.
The University of California, Berkeley, recently found that some Asian carp species eat mostly native fish — such as bluegill, a common freshwater fish.
They also eat other native species, such as rainbow trout.
Lett and his co-authors have also found that there is a link between Asian carp diet and fish health.
They have found that eating fish that are not native to the area and native to their waterway can lead to problems for fish and their native fish neighbors.
It was that link that led the researchers to think that Asian fishing in the Gulf and Mississippi is more than just a nuisance for native fishes.
“There are probably more problems than just the carp,” he noted.
“We don’t have a clear understanding of how Asian carp can have these impacts, but they can have a negative impact on native species and fish.”
The authors of the study are recommending that states regulate the number of Asian carPs in waterway systems to reduce their impact.
But the question is: How do you stop them?
Lipp told ABC News that the U,S.
Fish and Wildlife Service has already taken action to deal more effectively with the problem.
It has banned the use of Asian cars in fish hatcheries and banned the importation of Asian fish into the United States.
The agency also has a plan in place to protect native fish from Asian
