Illegal Carp Found in Southern Michigan Lake

Nets and electro-fishing will be brought in to remove illegal Carp found in a Southern Michigan lake.

The DNR plans to start the effort this week, removing the Grass Carp from Marrs Lake near Jackson.

The DNR will also sample the connected Washington, Wolf and Allen Lakes for Carp DNA to see if the fish spread.

Grass Carp are considered a species of Asian Carp but don't pose the same risk to the ecosystem.
