CO2 injected into freshwater ecosystems may be an effective method for controlling the spread of invasive species, specifically bigheaded carps. Studies have shown fish will avoid high pCO2 areas, suggesting that plumes of high CO2 in water bodies may be an effective barrier to fish movement. We have completed a series of studies to determine whether exposure to high CO2 alters native fishes and mussels. Key findings have shown that CO2 alters some common fish behaviors, and mussels exposed to CO2 have been found to undergo stress responses.
