Rep. Kustoff has worked to combat Asian carp in the Southeast. The Asian Carp invasion has taken over the Mississippi River system and has moved aggressively into the Tennessee and Cumberland River systems according to the TWF.
“Congressman Kustoff has quickly cemented himself as a lawmaker who understands the tangible and intangible value of our state’s great outdoors. And he’s willing to act on it on behalf of Tennesseans,” said Michael Butler, CEO of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “The Congressman has quickly become one of the most vocal supporters of conservation funding, particularly when it comes to combating invasive Asian carp that are threatening our waterways.”
The Tennessee Wildlife Foundation is one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to the conservation of Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources. It was established in 1946 in Chattanooga, TN.
