Dr. Przemek ‘ Shemek’ Bajer has been at the forefront of common carp research and management since 2006 and is an author of many of the most referenced scientific publication on carp management in North America. He is an Assistant Research Professor at the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center and the founder and owner of Carp Solutions LLC, a startup company that specializes in developing modern, practical technologies for common carp management. One of these approaches exploits carp's social behaviors to train these fish to aggregate around bait and remove them in large numbers. LLWA hired carp solutions to apply this approach in Long Lake during the summer of 2021. Carp Solutions has worked with dozens of local governments, businesses, and citizen groups to manage their carp populations in MN and elsewhere.
When Przemek is not chasing carp, he loves to fly fish for trout and steelhead.
