Aquatic nuisance species: an evaluation of barriers for preventing the spread of Bighead and Silver carp to the Great Lakes

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of electric barriers in restricting the movement of bighead and/or silver carp
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of acoustic/bubble barriers in restricting the movement of bighead and/or silver carp
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of combined barrier types (i.e. electric / acoustic / bubble) in restricting the movements of bighead and/or silver carp
