Do you know how to identify the four Asian carps and some of the species that often get confused with them? Join us for an overview of how to tell native fish apart from Asian carps, and how to report Asian carps if you do find one. Brook Schryer, Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach Liaison with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, will teach you about the main identification features of Asian carps and the species that get confused with carp! He will also walk you through how to report any invasive species using the Invading Species Hotline and EDDMapS Ontario.
