Is there a new weapon against Asian Carp?

Posted: Updated:
TRAVERSE CITY, MI (AP) -

It makes soda pop fizz, but could it also stop an Asian Carp invasion?

Scientists say a process similar to making carbonated soda water is being tested as a defense against the invasive fish.

During a recent test, the carp avoided sections of a Wisconsin pond where recycled carbon dioxide gas had been pumped in.

Researchers say they need to run more tests but, the process may help keep the destructive fish out of the Great Lakes.
