STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ) - State and federal government biologists took water samples from Sturgeon Bay Tuesday, to find out if the invasive Asian carp has indeed arrived in northeast Wisconsin.
Earlier this month, a Notre Dame study turned up DNA evidence that the invasive carp showed up near Potawatomi State Park in Door County. That's where Sturgeon Bay empties into the Bay of Green Bay.
Officials say Tuesday's water samples will be analyzed to give officials a better idea of whether the silver or the big-head Asian carp have taken any kind of hold in the area.
The samples will be processed in Green Bay, and will get DNA testing at a federal lab in La Crosse. The results are expected in January.
