Hundreds of dead carp reported at Jamestown Dam
JAMESTOWN -- A European or Asian fish virus may be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of carp in the waters behind Jamestown Dam, according to Gene van Eeckhout, fisheries biologist for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
Carp are not considered a game fish and are not commonly caught by anglers. Some fish are taken by archers during spring. The disease is not considered a threat to humans.
