Fish could cause Indiana boat accidents, Indiana environmental damage

August 19, 2010

We all know the damages some animals can cause in auto accidents; however, some marine life forms that were introduced to local waters to aid the environment may now be a hazard to both the environment and boaters.

According to WTHI, the Asian carp which is known to be a fish that helps keep waters clean, was introduced into the Wabash River for that very purpose. However, now that the fish is so populous, they may be an Indiana environmental hazard to the ecosystem and an Indiana boat accident risk for boaters.

The fish jump out of water and onto boats, sometimes hitting boat riders and drivers in the process. This could cause Indiana boat accidents and injuries.

There are now high number of Asian carps in the Wabash River and other Midwest waters, and it is unclear the ecological effect the fish will have on the other fish.
