Fight against Asian carp comes to Hastings
Governor Mark Dayton put his pen to work in the fight to keep Asian carp out of Minnesota waters. On Sept. 12, he documented an action plan to keep the fish at bay.
The plan gives the state's executive agencies authority to take action in seven ways. Among them is one that hits close to home here in Hastings: evaluating and, if feasible, installing a bubble or sound barrier at the mouth of the St. Croix River in Prescott to slow carp migration.
