North Dakota wildlife officials are hoping low water levels on the James River will help kill an Asian carp species famous for leaping out of the water.
Silver carp are a highly invasive species that can outcompete native fish species for food. Officials say the fish was first discovered in the James in North Dakota last year. Officials say the carp have migrated upstream through South Dakota in recent years.
Low water levels in the James River this year was blamed for hundreds of dead fish in the James River this year, many of them large northern pike. But officials say no dead silver carp have been discovered.
