Controlling carp: exploring the options for Australia

Carp Cyprinus carpio L. is only one of twenty freshwater fish introduced to Australia which are now naturalised in our river and lake systems. Carp have been in Australia for over a century, and are now present in every State except the Northern Territory. Distribution of carp continues to expand at an alarming rate.

This workshop had three objectives: To outline recent research and current thinking about carp ecology and impact in Australia; to review control options for carp; and to identify realistic research and management directions regarding control.
