Michigan is turning to the public for help fighting Asian carp.

The state plans to offer a prize to someone who can come up with a way to keep the invasive fish out of the Great Lakes. Michigan's Legislature and governor allocated $1 million to develop a global invasive carp challenge.

Details on how much prize money will be offered are being worked out.

Officials also haven't determined how many winners might be chosen.

The challenge will go live this summer in collaboration with crowdsourcing company InnoCentive.
