Kentucky’s Asian Carp Public Private

For Asian carp control, Kentucky means business. In response to the infestation of Asian carp in Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources proposes a bold plan for a public/private partnership. The goal is removing 150,000 pounds of these fish per day through commercial fishing. Host Charlie Baglan goes inside outdoors with Ron Brooks, the director of the division of fisheries, to discuss the plan and how a $1.2 billion tourist economy is at stake.
