Use of chemicals for carp control

The use of chemicals to poison fish is a relatively straightforward technical exercise, but one which requires careful decision making and logistical planning. The use of chemicals to control carp must be examined in the context of the desired outcomes and processes which need to be undertaken. Chemicals which kill carp are available for use when the circumstances can be justified. The difficulty is to determine those circumstances.
