Invasive Asian Carp present a serious danger to Kentucky’s waters and the state’s $1.2 billion fishing industry. Utilizing his role as Majority Leader, Senator McConnell successfully secured a record-high $25 million to help bolster the fight against Asian Carp, including in West Kentucky. At Majority Leader McConnell’s request, the Trump Administration deployed the Modified Unified Method using electronic technology to corral Asian Carp before extracting them from the water with specialized nets. This week, Senator McConnell was on site at Kentucky Lake joined by federal, state and local leaders to observe first-hand his efforts as Majority Leader become a reality in Kentucky.
