Attack of the Asian Carp

Posted by: Paul Austin Updated: October 23, 2012 - 1:03 PM

Who knew that learning from experts could be so much fun?  This Thursday night you can be part of an entirely unique experience as the Theatre of Public Policy takes aim at one of the most important issues facing our lakes and rivers.  Its part expert interview and part improv comedy.   

We’ve all heard the horror stories or seen the YouTube videos; giant fish leap from otherwise placid waters to attack unsuspecting boaters. But other than a few bumps to the head, what danger do Asian Carp really pose to Minnesota’s waters? Is it even possible to halt their invasion? What secret weapons are scientists cooking up to combat these silvery villains?

Finding out will be fun this Thursday @ 7pm.
