An Electric Fence for Fish

The electric barrier in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal is the last line of defence against invasive Asian carp reaching the Great Lakes, where they would cause an ecological and economic catastrophe by wiping out the bottom of the food chain in the lakes. With the U.S. federal government in charge of the project, and its being located in Illinois, where four of the last ten of the state’s governors ended up in federal prison, any bets on when the first carp are discovered in Lake Michigan?
