Individuals from Wenck Associations engineering firm were in Worthington Tuesday to conduct a carp survey on Lake Okabena. Anodes connected to their boat delivered an electrical charge to the water, causing fish to float to the surface. Carp were then collected, counted and weighed. The data will be used to determine if carp levels in the lake are too high and impact lake health. (Julie Buntjer / The Globe)
