CARP REMOVAL IS CRITICAL TO THE HEALTH OF OUR LAKE.
Carp destroy important native vegetation, stir up the lake bottom, fuel algae growth, and muck up the water, as can been seen from a bird’s eye view of Green Lake.
Every spring, the GLA joins forces with our partners to remove invasive carp. In 2018, commercial anglers removed 80,000 from the County Highway K Marsh, located at the southwest end of Green Lake. This year, with similar efforts, only 2,500 pounds of carp were caught. Cue the carp confetti!
This promising decline in the carp population demonstrates that your contribution to the GLA makes a measured impact on the health of the lake. Please give generously today!
Carp removal is only one part of our larger strategy to improve Green Lake’s water quality. Your support also allows us to partner with local landowners to install best management practices, tackle stream restoration projects to reduce lake pollution from urban and agricultural sources, fund university research, and conduct water quality monitoring, just to name a few.
We cannot do this work without your investment, so thank you for making a splash for the lake by helping us implement our lake-loving efforts!
