White amurs emerge as species of concern on Lake Erie
Federal officials reported in the fall that white amurs, a species of Asian carp, appear to be reproducing naturally in the Lake Erie basin for the first time.This is troubling news for wildlife managers trying to keep white amurs or grass carp out of Lake Erie and its streams.Commercial fishermen caught four white amurs in 2012 in the Sandusky River, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. An analysis showed that the fish, each about 18 inches long, were all at least a year old and had the capacity to become spawning adults.Grass carp also have been reported in Lake Erie near Monroe, Mich.They are closely related to three other carp species: silver, bighead and black carp, which have similar spawning and development requirements. Bighead and silver carp have reached extremely high densities in the Mississippi River Basin and threaten the Great Lakes because they out-compete native fish. Federal and state agencies have been trying to determine if bighead and silver Asian carp live in Lake Erie or the other Great Lakes. Tests of environmental DNA, called eDNA, indicate that bighead and silver carp might be present in Lake Erie in low numbers, but searches have not detected any live fish. Asian carp have been found in the Ohio River as far east as Portsmouth.— BOB DOWNING

Tests reveal evidence of invasive carp in Muskingum River
Evidence of the bighead carp has been found in the Muskingum River near Zanesville in east-central Ohio.Ten of 222 water samples collected last fall from the stream contained what’s called environmental DNA evidence, according to a report released Friday by the Nature Conservancy, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, Central Michigan University and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.As fish move through the water, they shed cells, blood and tissue. That material is suspended in the water and can be collected and analyzed. Environmental DNA, or eDNA, can alert surveyors to the potential of live fish in an area.Finding evidence of the fish 80 miles upstream from the Muskingum’s mouth at Marietta came as a surprise, said those involved.It also raises concern for the ecology of the Muskingum River ecosystem because of the threat posed by the bighead carp and its cousin, the silver carp. The huge fish can out-compete local fish for available food, threatening the native species’ survival.It also raises concerns about potential links in Medina and Summit counties between the Ohio River Basin and the Lake Erie Basin that must be blocked to keep the Asian carp out of Lake Erie. Those sites are 100 and 120 miles, respectively, from where the bighead carp evidence was found.Bighead carp are among several Asian carp species threatening Ohio. They have moved up the Illinois River and are threatening the Great Lakes through Chicago-area waterways. They also are moving up the Ohio River and had been confirmed in breeding populations near Louisville, Ky., and in isolated reports from a dam pool near Portsmouth.It is “pretty surprising” that the bighead carp are that far upstream on the river, said John Stark of the Nature Conservancy.Bighead carp can reach lengths of 4 feet and can weigh as much as 150 pounds. They were brought to the U.S. in the 1980s to eat algae and vegetation, mainly in ponds, but escaped to natural waterways.The recent tests found evidence of the bighead carp between Zanesville and Dresden in Muskingum County. That was the northernmost positive eDNA test, officials said.Samples are being analyzed further to determine if silver carp might be present. Those results are due in the fall.No bighead carp nor silver carp have been caught nor found in the Muskingum River, officials said.ODNR’s Division of Wildlife intends to begin additional testing in June on the Muskingum River and its headwaters, including the Tuscarawas River, spokesman Rich Carter said. That will include efforts to capture Asian carp and to conduct additional eDNA tests.“Right now, we don’t know if there’s an individual fish or if more are present in the system,” Carter said. “They are expanding. It is possible that they just got there, or it’s possible that they’ve been there for a while. ... Right now, we can’t answer that one way or the other.”The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also will be involved.Carter said the state still is developing plans for closing possible water links between the Ohio River and Lake Erie basins near Lodi in southern Medina County and at Long Lake on the Akron-Coventry Township border.Bighead carp have been confirmed in the Great Miami River and in a creek near Cincinnati, Carter said. It is not known how far upstream those fish might be, he said.Bob Downing can be reached at 330-996-3745 or bdowning@thebeaconjournal.com.

Plans taking shape to deal with Asian carp movement in Medina, Summit counties
HARRISVILLE TWP.: Asian carp are a long way from Medina County, but federal, state and local plans are taking shape to keep the invasive fish at bay.Exactly what will be needed to prevent the fish from moving from the Ohio River Basin to the Lake Erie drainage area is not yet known, but preliminary plans will likely be completed in the coming months.The federal Natural Resources Conservation Service is looking at Dewey Hall’s 1,700-acre farm south of Lodi near the Medina-Wayne county line, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is looking at a similar potential connection from the Portage Lakes to the Ohio & Erie Canal in Summit County.Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director James Zehringer and key staffers on Monday visited Hall’s farm, which is at the center of the effort to keep Asian carp out of Lake Erie and the other Great Lakes. The visit was part of Gov. John Kasich’s visit to Medina to deliver his State of the State address. The governor’s Cabinet fanned out through the county to meet with residents and tour points of interest.Potential pathway Hall’s farm is “a pinch point” in Zehringer’s words and a place of major importance in the battle against Asian carp.The farm with its dark muck soils is one of four potential water pathways in Ohio from the Ohio River to Lake Erie. It is off Garden Isle Road and straddles the divide between Lake Erie and the Ohio River. It drains north to Clear Creek and the West Fork of the Black River that drains to Lake Erie. It drains south near Interstate 71 to Little Killbuck Creek and Repp Run.The fear is that Asian carp could, at high water and during floods, move from Little Killbuck Creek to the Black River and get into Lake Erie, where the Asian carp would out-compete local fish like walleyes, perch and bass for food.The farm where Hall grows field corn, soybeans and sweet corn that is sold at Acme stores relies on a complex combination of 6-foot-high dikes built in the 1940s and 1950s by Hall’s father, plus ditches and pumps.What remedies may be needed on Hall’s farm are still unknown but could include building new berms, reconfiguring drainage ditches and eliminating or modifying pumping, the experts said.Hall has pledged to work with the involved agencies to solve the problem and to block the Asian carp.Those corrective steps may also affect about eight landowners off Franchester Road west of Hall’s farm, said Jeff Van Loon of the Medina County Soil and Water Conservation District.That low-lying area appears to drain north and south and could be an added route, he said.The report on what to do will likely be finished in about two or three months, he said.Not here yet Asian carp are probably 300-plus miles from Medina County, said Rich Carter, the ODNR’s top fishery expert.A few individual Asian carp — four species including the silver and bighead carp — have been found in the Ohio River near Portsmouth. But breeding Asian carp are still near Louisville, Ky.Tests were conducted last fall on the Muskingum River Basin that stretches from Akron to the Ohio River to determine if Asian carp are there. The results are still incomplete.Asian carp are also approaching Chicago and could get into Lake Michigan.The four Ohio pathways were identified in a 2012 report by the Corps of Engineers. The other two sites are at Mosquito Creek Lake in Trumbull County and at Grand Lake St. Marys in Mercer and Auglaize counties.Carter said the ODNR asked the Corps of Engineers to assess the water connection from Long Lake to the Ohio & Erie Canal on the Akron-Coventry Township line, largely because of the complexity of the hydrogeological system in the Portage Lakes.Work on that assessment is continuing and will likely be done in a few months, he said.Ohio is also aggressively monitoring and looking for Asian carp, Zehringer said.When asked of all the attention brought to the farm on Monday, Hall said, “Something always comes up when you’re farming.”Bob Downing can be reached at 330-996-3745 or bdowning@thebeaconjournal.com.

Winter storm warning issued for Akron area
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Akron area, with 6 to 10 inches of snow predicted for the region. The warning is in effect from Tuesday evening through late Wednesday afternoon. The National Weather Service in Cleveland predicts the snow will begin falling in Akron around 8 p.m. Tuesday. “The heaviest snow will occur about two hours after the snow begins and last about nine hours,” according to the advisory. “Most of the accumulation will occur by mid-morning on Wednesday.” Travel is expected to be hazardous during the storm, the weather service said, as blowing and drifting snow could reduce visibility to one-quarter of a mile at times with winds ranging from 10 to 20 mph. Accuweather is predicting 4 to 8 inches of snow in Akron with sleet mixing in early Wednesday morning. Far southern and southeastern Ohio had to contend with a separate winter storm Sunday night into Monday afternoon. Ohio University in Athens and Shawnee State University in Portsmouth canceled classes Monday, and some government offices closed. Kim Carver, director of the Scioto County Emergency Management Agency in Portsmouth, said numerous traffic accidents were reported, although none appeared serious. “It was mostly bent fenders and hurt feelings,” said Carver, who estimated the area received about 8 to 10 inches. The Skyline Family Restaurant at the Greater Portsmouth Regional Airport in Minford closed. “We didn’t want our employees risking their lives,” said co-owner Tammy Blackburn. She said she and her husband went in only to accept a delivery. “We have a four-wheel drive, but the roads were terrible with ice and snow,” Blackburn said. “People are ready for this winter to be over. It’s been really tough on businesses, and it’s cut into employees’ hours.” Bill Schneider, from Beaver in nearby Pike County, stopped by the restaurant for coffee after clearing off some neighbors’ driveways. “This was the biggest snow we’ve had this year,” said Schneider, who had about 8 inches at his home. “They are working on the roads, but they’re still icy.” An auto parts store employee in Athens said that area received 7 to 10 inches. “People are getting out and about, but the roads are still covered with snow,” AutoZone employee Jared Hill said. He said most customers were buying wiper blades. “It was batteries mostly last week because of the cold,” he said, referring to subzero temperatures that hit Ohio the past few weeks. The snow had ended over the state by early afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. But Ohio won’t get much of a respite, with the new storm expected to move in Tuesday. Forecasters expect the heaviest snow probably will be in the Akron area with southern Ohio possibly getting rain or snow mixed with rain or freezing rain. “Wednesday morning will be dicey for travel in some areas,” meteorologist John Franks said.
