The focal point is Eagle Marsh, a 705-acre restored wetland near Fort Wayne that DNR staff identified as a possible pathway for Asian carp passage under certain flood conditions. The marsh is just north of Fox Island County Park near the intersection of Interstate 69 and U.S. 24.
Previously, officials had stated that other barriers were sufficient to keep the carp in check. The AP reports that the fencing should be in place by late summer.
