If you are interest in attending the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center Event on the Asian Carp crisis, please click on the link above.  Andrew Reeves, author of OVERRUN:  Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis will be doing a Q and A.


The Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center is pleased to welcome Andrew Reeves, author of Overrun: Dispatches from the Asian Carp Crisis to St. Paul on Tuesday, April 9.

Reeves will take attendees on a behind-the-scenes look at the Asian carp crisis in North America -- how did we get here, and where do we go now? Reeves proposes a radical scientific and political shift to rethink how we can bring back our degraded and ignored rivers, and reconsider how we create equilibrium in a shrinking world.

Overrun features several MAISRC researchers and our ongoing work into preventing the upstream spread of Asian carp in the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers. Attendees will also briefly hear from MAISRC Director Nick Phelps and St. Croix River Association Executive Deb Ryan. Reserve your spot today! 


  • The event will be in Discovery Hall at the Science Museum of Minnesota
