A River in Reverse: Asian carp from David Kennedy on Vimeo.

Bighead and Silver carp, two species of Asian carp, were introduced to the United States in the 1970’s and escaped into the wild shortly thereafter. They are voracious filter-feeders that out-compete native fishes. Asian carp are now abundant in the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois rivers and are poised to invade the Great Lakes.
