---
The Cal-Sag and Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal: A Perspective on the
Spread and Control of Selected Aquatic Nuisance Fish Species.

Presentation by Jerry Rasmussen, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Thursday, February 14, 2002-9:00am
Room 105 Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab, 2205 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Ann Arbor, MI

Jerry Rassmussen, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, will describe the role
the Cal-Sag and Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal plays in the transfer of
species between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River basins.  Jerry
will focus the talk on Asian Carp species: their history of
introduction, economic use, the method and timing of invasions to the
Mississippi River, current distribution, impacts, and finally, the
threat they pose to the Great Lakes.  There is a sense of urgency to
prevent further movement of aquatic nuisance species between the two
basins and Jerry's talk seeks to open a dialogue on threats and
potential solutions.

Discussion to follow.  Craig Czarnecki, Supervisor of the East Lansing
Field Office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will also be
available to answer questions. A recording of the presentation and
discussion will also be made available via streaming video at
