Carp Research Project Reports

Carp is a major feral pest in Australia. Development of control options has consistently been identified as a high priority research item. When carp were identified in lakes Crescent (2365 ha) and Sorell (4770 ha) in 1995, the Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) decided to eradicate – both populations. These represent the only extant carp populations in Tasmania and threaten the State’s premier trout fishery that attracts 30,000 anglers per year.
