Risk-based management for bigheaded carps

A workshop to discuss the findings and implications of the Minnesota Bigheaded Carps Risk Assessment

To help inform Asian carp management and research priorities in Minnesota, a risk assessment was recently conducted to assess the threats posed by bigheaded carps (also known as bighead and silver carp, two of the four species of Asian carp) to the state of Minnesota.  

This workshop will serve as an opportunity to share the findings from this risk assessment and to discuss their implications with a broad group of stakeholders, decision-makers, researchers, managers, and interested members of the public from Minnesota and the surrounding area. Attendees will have the opportunity, through small and large group discussions, to learn about the risk assessment and to deliberate on the implications of these findings for management efforts in Minnesota.


When: March 15, 2017

8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Where: University of Minnesota, St. Paul Campus


Details for the workshop, as well as the Minnesota Bigheaded Carps Risk Assessment report itself, will be provided in February.
