Asian Carp Really Good at Math


The latest effort to thwart the invasive Asian Carp from entering the Great Lakes has failed. Officials had tried a new gill net with a geometrical pattern to try and block the invasive species, but they have figured out a way to get through the nets. “You have to hand it to those Asian carp” said gill net inventor Dr. Thomas Tarsic. “We thought the geometrical pattern would thwart them, but they figured it out almost immediately.” When asked what the next step would be, Tarsic stated: “We’re going to make the next net taller; maybe that will work.” Upon hearing this, Dr. Anthony Kim, Tarsic’s research partner, shook his head and left the room for his 2:00 appointment with the HR manager.
