SOUTH BEND, IN (WKZO) -- A new study by the University of Notre Dame, Central Michigan University and The Nature Conservancy has found Asian carp DNA is not widespread in the Great Lakes.

Lead author Christopher Jerde at Notre Dame says they did extensive sampling of the water in southern Lake Michigan along with Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair.  DNA has been found in Lake Erie, but Jerde says it's likely from live fish, which he says debunks recent reports suggesting birds and boats are spreading the material.
