            ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota, Wisconsin and federal officials plan to conduct large-scale netting in response to the capture of 51 invasive carp on the Mississippi River.

            The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says netters caught the silver and grass carp near La Crosse and Trempealau, Wisconsin, last weekend.

            Biologists identified 39 silver and 11 grass carp caught just south of La Crosse and one silver carp caught farther upstream.

            "The location where these fish were caught is commonly netted because of concentrations of commercially valuable fish,” Minnesota DNR invasive carp field lead Ben Larson said in a news release. “This is the largest congregation of invasive carp we’ve seen this far upstream."

            Officials say it's likely the fish swam north when dam gates were opened last summer to pass flood waters.

            No breeding populations have been detected in Minnesota waters to date.
