ABSTRACT. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force determined that Asian carp warrant active control by natural resource agencies and developed a national plan to address these species. The Missouri River Basin Asian Carp Control Strategy Framework (Framework) implements the national plan at the Missouri River sub-basin level. Six goals and associated strategies are identified in the Framework and relate to the national plan as well as other regional plans. Implementation of the Framework will be coordinated through the Asian Carp Technical Committee (Tech Committee) of the Missouri River Natural Resources Committee with the intent to minimize the social, ecological, and economic impacts of these invasive fishes to the Missouri River Basin.  The Tech Committee will be a multidisciplinary group of state and federal agencies, universities, and other partners.  As an unfunded component of national Asian carp management and control, strong collaboration and coordination in the Missouri River Basin will be key for success.
