Watershed Watch Executive Director, Craig Orr, comments on the threat of invasive species in the Surrey North Delta Leader article Strange fish in Fraser not invasive Asian carp. The article reports “Unusual fish caught in the Fraser River near Lillooet and Lytton are common carp, not the highly invasive Asian silver carp that have infested some U.S. river systems.”

Craig Orr said he’d be concerned for the Fraser’s salmon stocks if Asian silver carp had arrived in the river. “They’re an extremely invasive and destructive species.”
