According to a press release and social media posts by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), a recent operation led by CPW successfully removed 14 invasive bighead carp from Arvada’s Jack B Tomlinson Park, following a tip-off from a vigilant member of the public.

Acting swiftly, CPW’s aquatic biologists conducted a thorough sweep of the area, employing advanced electrofishing methods to apprehend the hefty carp, each measuring a minimum of three feet in length, with the largest weighing a staggering 46 pounds. These invasive species, known for their disruptive impact on native ecosystems, pose a significant threat to Colorado’s aquatic biodiversity.

Wow–excellent work!
