Governments are tying hard to contain the spread of Asian carp across borders, but us humans keep getting in the way of containment.
A trucker who was hauling iced fish was stopped at the US/Canadian border for inspection, and because the cargo contained some Asian carp, the goods were looked at more closely by Canadian officials.
Evidently, the inspectors dropped a few fish into water and they came back to life just like Houdini. Thus, they weren't hauling dead fish, but live fish, a big fine if you're hauling this less than precious cargo.
How's $75k for the trucking company and $5k for the driver? Steep yes, but it sends a message.
Asian carp, stay out!
