The Carp Management Program prepares for the upcoming season
With the onset of winter, the carp management team has diverted their efforts toward the planning and preparation of gear and equipment for the upcoming season in spring. So far 450 m of gill net has been repaired, with another 1000 m to go, as well as dozens of fyke nets which require checking and repairing to ensure optimal performance. A further 9 km of gill net is on order and expected to arrive shortly. This coming season is even more important, with a large proportion of the male carp predicted to be become mature. Spawning prevention while removing the existing population will be the focus.
