Invasive Asian Silver Carp Heading This Way

April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is currently preparing recommendations for locating fish deterrent barriers on the Tennessee River, Cumberland River, and Tennessee Tombigbee waterway to protect against the invasive Asian silver carp and will be asking for public comment in June 2024. Dr. Joseph, a fisheries biologist with 50 years’ experience, will discuss the threats posed by silver carp, the state’s present plan, and the only waterways still available to save: Melton Hill, Tellico, and Ft. Loudoun lakes. Dirk Van Hoesen will discuss specific actions needed; review WBEFC’s current activities and path forward with local, state, and federal political leaders; and explain the process for public comments during the open comment period in June. Details online. Register online.

This in-person program will be free and recorded on Zoom. To receive a link to the recording, participants will need register at www.utarboretumsociety.org.
