Mott Foundation Gives $500K To Fight Asian Carp 8-27-2010

The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation is giving $500,000 to the Great Lakes Commission to help it find ways to prevent invasive Asian carp from entering the lakes.
The Flint-based foundation says it hopes the grant will help protect the Great Lakes region's $7 billion annual sport fishing industry.
The foundation said a team led by the Great Lakes Commission and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative will seek "the best economic and environmental solutions" for keeping nonnative species from entering the Great Lakes through Chicago's canals.
Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota and Pennsylvania are asking a federal judge in Chicago to take emergency action to close two shipping locks and install barriers against the carp.
