Filmed in Ottawa, Illinois, this Fox News clip shows just how serious the asian carp invasion is for the Great Lakes.

Lately, asian carp have been migrating towards the Great Lakes, and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources takes action to stop the spread.

Watch as Fox News investigates the invasion and looks into preventative methods.

As you just saw, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources was doing everything possible to combat the invasive species. They were simply removing them from the water to retard their spread through the Great Lakes watershed.

This new clip was filmed on the Illinois River, where you saw just how massive the asian carp invasion was. These conservationists were doing their best to keep them from getting into the Great Lakes.

Hopefully, none of these fish will be able to negatively affect the ecosystem of the Great Lakes system and harm the native fish populations.
