According to Fox 11 Online, government agencies plan to spend nearly $60 million over the next two years in the battle to prevent invasive Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes, where scientists say they could unravel food chains and harm native fish.

The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee released its 2015 strategy Tuesday. The strategy includes a study of controls at a lock and dam in Joliet, Illinois, that forms a choke point between the Mississippi and Great Lakes watersheds.
