The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said Thursday that a commercial fishing crew caught 30 invasive carp in the Mississippi River Monday near Winona, Minn. — the largest number captured at one time so far upstream.
 

Invasive carp were brought to the southern United States in the 1970s to control algae in fish farms. They escaped and have advanced up the Mississippi ever since. They compete with native species and pose a threat to rivers and lakes. In 2020, 51 carp were captured just south of La Crosse, Wisconsin, downstream from Winona.
