Dave White http://wrvo.org en Asian carp could pose real threat to Great Lakes ecosystem http://wrvo.org/post/asian-carp-could-pose-real-threat-great-lakes-ecosystem <p>The threat of Asian Carp entering the Great Lakes has been talked about for years. While the potential of the invasive species on the lakes has not been fully determined, environmentalists are concerned the fish could hurt the lakes' ecosystem.<br /><br />Dave White, with New York Sea Grant, says big head and silver carp have been detected very close to the Great Lakes, so the risk of a flood introducing them into the lakes is always present.<br /> Tue, 05 Nov 2013 21:52:02 +0000 Gino Geruntino 46176 at http://wrvo.org Asian carp could pose real threat to Great Lakes ecosystem Should a ship be deliberately sunk in Lake Ontario? http://wrvo.org/post/should-ship-be-deliberately-sunk-lake-ontario <p></p> Fri, 04 Oct 2013 20:50:32 +0000 Gino Geruntino 45162 at http://wrvo.org Should a ship be deliberately sunk in Lake Ontario? Hydrilla could threaten marine life in Cayuga Lake http://wrvo.org/post/hydrilla-could-threaten-marine-life-cayuga-lake <p>There’s another invasive species that’s threatening to destroy the habitat of numerous other plants and animals. This one lives underwater. It’s called hydrilla…and it’s spreading through the cayuga inlet near the south end of cayuga lake. Ithaca’s mayor has already declared an environmental emergency and ordered all boat traffic to stop through cayuga inlet to try and stop the plant from spreading.</p> Thu, 13 Oct 2011 12:54:23 +0000 Adam Wolfe 7689 at http://wrvo.org
