The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee has announced the release of the 2021 Asian Carp Action Plan. The 2021 Action Plan, funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and annual agency appropriations, includes 61 detection, prevention and control projects. These efforts include an aggressive reduction of Asian carp populations along established fronts, large-scale field trials of potential fish deterrent technologies, and actions to address black and grass carp threats.

The ACRCC is a bi-national partnership of 28 U.S. and Canadian federal, state, provincial, tribal and local agencies and organizations with the mission of preventing the introduction and establishment of Asian carp in the Great Lakes.
