About 250 grass carp are now silently swimming in the waters of Taunton Lake, the scenic 125-acre spring-fed, glacial lake in the Taunton District whose waters drain into Pond Brook and eventually to the Housatonic River.
The grass carp, which are not native to the lake, recently were released into it as part of a project designed to curb the growth of the weed known as aquatic milfoil. Grass carp eat milfoil.
