Separation Of Perch And Lake?  

FOX News, among others, has the story about a new report from the Alliance for the Great Lakes indicating that an "ecological separation" of the Great Lakes from the Mississippi River Basin is the only way to keep some invasive species out of the lakes.

Their plans also include a call for the permanent underwater electric carp fence to be fully activated. To read the report in full, download it here.
