This project synthesises the outputs of various projects supported by the Freshwater Products and Strategies Program of the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (IA CRC) in order to assess weaknesses […]
In 2006, a benchmarking fisheries assessment survey found that the Logan and Albert rivers catchment was heavily infested with carp. Benchmarking entailed electrofishing surveys at 28 sites across the catchment. […]
Carp (Cyprinus carpio) are one of at least 34 freshwater fish species introduced into Australia that have established self-sustaining populations (Lintermans 2004). Carp are now the most abundant large freshwater […]
Being able to accurately age carp is important for modelling population dynamics and potential response to various control strategies. This study examined the use of oxytetracycline (OTC) and otolith (ear […]
Introduction Carp (Cyprinus carpio) are not native to Australia, but they now dominate fish communities throughout many inland waterways. Widespread eradication of these established populations would be difficult, costly and […]
The community can now record evidence of pest fish in their local area with FeralFishScan, a new interactive website to support a whole of catchment approach to pest fish management in local waterways.
Some introduced freshwater fish species have had devastating impacts on Australia’s native freshwater fish species and other aquatic life and ecosystems. Introduced or ‘alien’ fish usually have a high rate […]
