Prefabricated Shelters Protecting Against a Fish Invasion
When the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources searched for a solution to problems that arose due to an invasion of Asian carp, they turned to conservation technology company Smith-Root and in turn, Smith-Root turned to the prefabricated shelters from Shelter Works.
Silver carp and bighead carp are two types of Asian carp that have established populations in the Mississippi River basin since at least the 1990s. These aggressive, invasive fish have expanded their range throughout the basin, and individuals have been captured in the Mississippi River basin as far north as the James River near Jamestown, North Dakota, and the St. Croix River near Bayport, Minnesota.
