The invasive Asian carp has been a problem in the U.S. for decades. The federal government has focused their efforts mostly on keeping the carp out of the Great Lakes to protect their multibillion-dollar fishing industry, but the fish have also started wreaking havoc in states as far south as Tennessee.

Jay Shah, from member station WPLN, reports the state's wildlife agency has a plan to keep the carp contained.
