Carp: a case study

Carp are extremely adaptable animals and can thrive in environments that would kill other freshwater fish. It is thought it will be impossible to totally eradicate the existing population and so, the most realistic approach is to control carp numbers.
Scientists are investigating this ‘daughterless technology’ which aims to control carp numbers through creating a fish population with many more males than females.
