National Fisherman

BURLINGTON — On Monday, the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Regional Minister for southwestern Ontario, joined by Member of Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Larry Miller, announced the opening of a new Asian carp science lab in Burlington.
 
Rather than shipping samples for analysis outside of the country, the new lab will allow Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientists to rapidly test samples collected in Canadian waters, right here in Canada, a press release from the ministry states. “Researchers will now get testing results in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks, saving both time and money in the ongoing monitoring to prevent Asian carp entry.”
 
Employees from the new facility will also now be conducting routine early detection inspections in high-risk waterways starting this summer.
