The Murray and the Great Lakes?

According to this post in Time magazine, carp, a fish well-known in Australia for decimating the native fish ecosystems of the Murray-Darling Basin, are also invading the Great Lakes of the United States. The species, however, that is invasive is different but of the same family, and the carp that has invaded the Murray is also listed as one of eight dangerous Asian species.
