Geological Survey discovered newly hatched grass carp in the Maumee River this past summer. Scientists have been concerned about invasive Asian carp like the grass carp spreading from rivers into larger bodies of freshwater. The fish has been found in Lake Erie shoreline and tributaries in other life stages, such as fertilized eggs, juveniles and adults. This new discovery will aid in management decisions in the future.

Stunned Asian carp leap from Kentucky lake

Asian carp are a serious problem, and Kentucky is getting creative in dealing with the invasive species. To show how bad the issue is, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources used "shocking" boats to stun the carp so they'd float to the surface and could be collected and measured. Video shows countless fish leaping after the boat sent an electrical current through the water at Barkley Dam on Tuesday. Stunning fish with electricity is a common practice when it comes to counting the population or tagging them, the department explained. The stunning does not kill the fish, only temporarily shocks them so they can be counted or caught. We collect and try to distribute to them to buyers," said Ron Brooks, the department's fisheries division director.

The effort is the polar opposite of shooting fish in a barrel. It's more like looking for a needle in a haystack- and it's one of the reasons many people in neighboring states to the north are so worried about the ability to stop the Asian carp before they enter the Great Lakes. They're catching fish- but so far no Asian Carp. That's either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your perspective.
In a series of social posts containing illustrations and different costumes, the group reinforced this notion. Jen Brockman, the Director of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center at the University of Kansas, told ABC's Good Morning America that the hashtag did not originate with their office -- it was first used by the University of Oklahoma years ago -- but they wholeheartedly support the message attached to it. Brockman said that hashtag serves as, "an extension of a greater conversation about rape culture and the assumption that what someone wears causes harm to occur -- that somehow the costume that we're wearing invites offenders to cause harm against us, which is not true. Don't be that person!
