Cedar Lake Carp Removal Plan

Carp (an aquatic invasive species in Minnesota) negatively affect water quality and overall ecological integrity of waterbodies by resuspending sediments and nutrients into the water column through feeding and spawning behavior, reducing the abundance of submerged aquatic vegetation, and, to a lesser extent, excretion of waste. Overabundant carp populations can bioengineer the environments they live in and dramatically change the ecology of shallow lake systems.

WSB has agreed to work collaboratively with the Cedar Lake Improvement District (CLID) to manage the common carp population in Cedar Lake. WSB staff have a combined 29 years of experience in carp research and management.SB has agreed to work collaboratively with the Cedar Lake Improvement District (CLID) to manage the common carp population in Cedar Lake.
