Asian Carp Canada Webinar
Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Great Lakes Fishery Commission announced the results of a key risk assessment study on Grass Carp for the Great Lakes Basin. Grass Carp have been found in Lakes Michigan, Erie and Ontario and the ecological consequences in most areas of the Great Lakes basin could be extreme within the next 50 years. Lisa Jones will present on findings. She is a Visiting Fellow at Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and has been working for the Asian Carp Program in the role of researcher and project manager of the ecological Grass Carp risk assessment for the Great Lakes basin. She has extensive experience in aquatic invasive species research, with a MSc and PhD from McGill University where she studied factors influencing the ecology of zebra and quagga mussels.
