Stop Asian Carp Before It’s Too Late!

Asian Carp Great LakesThe Great Lakes are a national treasure, and economically support a $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and 1.5 million jobs. The introduction of Asian carp and other species puts the well-being of our communities, wildlife, and waters at risk.

Agriculture

Ohio is a major food producer in the United States. Livestock agriculture has dramatically shifted away from traditional family farming. New and expanding Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), or factory farms, pose significant problems to public health, quality of life and the environment. CAFOs produce over ten million tons of manure per year, with some individual facilities creating more waste than medium-sized cities. These facilities significantly impact communities with foul odors, air pollution, water pollution and declining property values. We can reduce environmental and public health impacts of agricultural production by purchasing sustainable, local foods. Visit the Agriculture Committee page to learn more about our efforts and get involved.
