Herbicide, weed-eating carp tackle hydrilla in Spring Bayou

SPRING BAYOU — Louisiana biologists are fighting hydrilla, an invasive aquatic weed that grows into dense mats near the surface of water, in Spring Bayou in Avoyelles Parish. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says it is fighting the fast-growing plant by stocking the bayou with grass carp, which feed on the weed.
