Build The Dang Fence!

No, not that one.

Federal officials had already committed $80 million to control the spread of the Asian carp - a voracious eater which biologists fear will outmaneuver native fish and cause a collapse in the lakes' multibillion-dollar commercial and recreational fishing industries. But the control effort, which included the construction of an underwater electric fence, has apparently failed, and politicians in the region are pressing for further action.
