    Its funny at first. But then you realize just how badly they ruined that river. The shear number of those things has got to decimated the other fish populations. Not to mention its not even safe to boat down the river anymore.

    With a name like "FishEh", you would be worried about the fish, rather than how funny that vid was. Were there any other animals that were harmed during the filming of that movie??

    I think fishEH is pointing out a non-native fish was introduced to that body of water which threw the system out of balance. Looks like it's his part of the world too so I'll bet he's got some insight to this story and maybe lost his game fishing there.

    How far am I off, fishEH?!

    Fortunatley it hasn't migrated up into my neck of the woods yet, but its darn close. I've seen lakes absolutely ruined by native carp species. They're savages. They stir up the bottom which has a terrible effect on water quality and the compete with actual game species for food.

    Now take the effect of native carp and multiply it and you'll have the effect of these non-native carp. Not only do they decimate game fish populations but they are an actual hazard to recreation on these bodies of water.

    The pic I attached is of two lakes across the street from eachother in my home town. Both lakes were infested with carp. All means of erradicating them were tried but ultimately the only thing that worked was a total fish kill. They introduced a chemical called Rotenone. It kills everything that breathes with gills. The picture illustates the difference in water quality between a healthy lake and one infested with carp. I'm happy to report all lakes in this town were treated, restocked, and are now thriving fisheries boasting populations of bluegill, blue catfish, largemouth bass, and tiger musky.

    We lost a great sport fishing river over here for several years due to Seals and Sea Lions being allowed unrestricted access. Originally, the Russian River had a few miles of gravel that filtered the large sea life out. After the gravel was dredged, netting was used to guard the access. A court case in sued and the game fishing lost - the nets were removed and the sea life wiped out everything for a good decade.

    Hopefully, those carp won't ruin Lake Michigan!!

    Gee, this thread is quite a rabbit trail from LAND ROVER. Sorry about that, gents!
