Their target: Asian carp DNA.

The officers set up their portable lab at the 144th and Mercury Drive boat launch. They took their boat out, and took a variety of water samples.

This is the first time the officers have taken samples for Asian carp DNA, and this will serve as baseline data for annual testing of the invasive species.

testing FOR the invasive species.


sounds about right...spend a bunch of money to let me know when they are here rather than spending that money to prevent the invasion...we wouldn't want to offend the asian carp...we accept all.


When they get here, and if one of those whack you in the head when your buzzing along in your boat, will you be able to sue the state or feds for neglect??

We should force these alien invaders to use the same process all foreigners use to come here...maybe they will vote for the proper political party to maintain their status.
