STATE NEWS ROUNDUP: No Asian carp found from a river that flows into Lake Michigan


New test results show no evidence of the invasive Asian carp from a river that flows into Lake Michigan. The U-S Fish-and-Wildlife Service said yesterday it found no genetic material from the bloated carp in about 200 water samples from the Kalamazoo River in Lower Michigan. The agency is monitoring numerous Great Lakes tributaries for signs of the Asian carp. Michigan’s D-N-R says several tributaries in that state are being tested, and the results will come out before the end of the year.
