Massive Asian carp die-off reported below Lake Barkley in western Kentucky

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 5:15 PM EDT

Kentucky officials now say about a half-million Asian carp died in the Cumberland River below Lake Barkley dam and believe the bulk of the kill is over.

Fisheries biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources were in the area in western Kentucky on Friday and are trying to determine what caused the invasive silver carp to die.

Fish and Wildlife's western fisheries district biologist, Paul Rister, says anglers were seeing dead fish up to two weeks ago, and it's believed the peak of the die-off is past.

Rister says the pattern is typical of a kill caused by a viral pathogen. Silver carp, which aren't native to the U.S., seem to be the only fish affected.

Dying carp from the area will be tested at Kentucky State University.
