    Over the course of thirty years, the Island of Boca Grande in Florida went from having zero Iguanas to over 10 thousand. This invasive species was making it impossible for native plants and animals to survive. The island finally decided to do something about it, they called George Cera.

      Asian Carp are quickly becoming the invasive species to beat. They are showing up and taking over in rivers across the country and threatening native species by out-competing fish for the plankton that forms the base of the aquatic food chain. The fish may be present in the Twin Cities as well. What better way to head home, than to meet with a fisherman who was tackling the very fish who would soon be greeting us from in a few days? We went out with a fisherman on the Peoria River and got to see what our future hopefully doesn't hold.
