CHICAGO (WKZO) -- A mutual aid agreement is now in place among the governors of the Great Lakes states and the premiers of Ontario and Quebec to fight the Asian carp and other invasive species. The agreement is being touted as the first of its kind in the world to prevent the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species; foster mutual aid to respond to such threats and encourage more cooperation by the states and provinces

Also announced were several actions taken over the past year against the "least wanted" species. Those include Illinois adding four plants to its injurious species list, Michigan including all "least wanted" species on its prohibited and restricted list by July and New York banning impairing, possessing and selling live bighead carp.
