'Asian Carp' Gets A Makeover In MN Senate

April 28, 2014, 3:05 PM

ST. PAUL, MN -

The term "Asian carp" has become endangered in Minnesota.

The state Senate on Monday approved a measure that would rename the fish "invasive carp." It's a response to concern by some people that the current term casts people from Asian cultures in a negative light.

Senators added the proposal to a larger bill that governs Minnesota natural-resource use. That legislation returns to the House, where it passed earlier this month without the name change.

Champlin Democrat John Hoffman said on the Senate floor that referring to the fish as "Asian" was hurtful to some people.

Officials have been trying to block the non-native fish's progress into Mississippi River and Great Lakes ecosystems.
