Asian carp could thrive in all five Great Lakes if even a small number of the invasive species made it into the basin, according to a scientific report released Thursday.

Carp experts have long debated whether the feared fish, which have been found in the Illinois River, would be able to flourish in the Lakes.

Previous studies have cast doubts, noting potential food shortages and relatively cold water temperatures.
 

But the study led by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, which included two U.S. Geological Survey scientists, found that there would be enough food to feed the fish, especially in Green Bay, Saginaw Bay, Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie.

Water temperatures would also not be too cold to stymie survival, according to the report.

"The questions everyone has been asking are: 'Can a breeding population survive in the Great Lakes and would it be a significant problem if they did?'" USGS Director Marcia McNutt said in a released statement. "Now we know the answers and unfortunately they are 'yes and yes.'"
