Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant took part in the 13th annual Chicago River Student Congress on Saturday, February 20 at Amundsen High School in Chicago. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Chicago River. IISG specialists engaged 75 high school and middle school students from around the city in hands-on learning about Asian carp.

Through the game, Stop those Asian Carp!, students learned characteristics of Asian carp, the potential threat they pose to the ecosystem of Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes, and what can be done about it.
