There is no evidence that Asian carp have spread to watersheds in West Michigan, in particular the Kalamazoo River, according to a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service study released today by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. The federal agency collected 200 water samples from the Kalamazoo River, all of which proved negative for environmental DNA traces of Asian carp. The tests were part of an area-wide monitoring program of Lake Michigan tributaries that also included the Muskegon River, Grand River and St. Joseph River. Results from those surveys will be available later this year, according to a DNR press release. [3:47 p.m.]
