Carpal Tonnage Syndrome

Utah is sick of carp, and they can't take it any more! According to this report at ABC News, Utah is soliciting proposals from people with ideas about how to remove one million carp per year from Utah Lake, the state's largest body of freshwater. Experts are especially interested in proposals that elaborate on what to do with all that dead carp (Here's what Illinois wants to do with theirs). An article from Deseret Morning News back in September 2005 noted that there are an estimated 7.5 million carp currently living in the lake. The removal project is scheduled to take place starting in 2007.
