Carp can cause significant damage to aquatic plants and increase water turbidity, negatively impacting on native aquatic fauna and habitat. The greatest environmental impact of carp results from their feeding behaviour. Being a predominantly benthic (bottom feeding) species, carp cause habitat modification as well as competing for habitat with native fish species.
