BLOG: Have you seen this fish?

Ohio officials announced Tuesday that they have detected Asian carp DNA from 20 water samples taken earlier this summer from the Sandusky River and Sandusky Bay.

They are asking fishermen to join the search to see if Asian carp are swimming around in Lake Erie. Anglers are being asked to watch this video:

Here's the instructions from an Ohio Department of Natural Resources press release if you happen to catch an Asian carp:

"If anglers or constituents have observed or captured an Asian carp, immediately notify ODNR at 800-WILDLIFE (945-3543). Photograph the fish from nose to tail, and retain the fish on ice for verification. Photographs can be sent directly to ODNR at wildohio.com by clicking on the Asian Carp link and following the instructions."
