Carp Management Program Annual Report 2017-18
The Carp Management Program Annual Report 2017-18 is complete and available on our website. Find out all about the 2017-18 season and how the battle with carp in Lake Sorell is going.
The 2017-18 season saw 107 carp removed from Lake Sorell. Over the years we have removed 41 452 carp and we think less than 50 now remain.
The biggest carp for the season was a female weighing 2 229 grams with a gonad weight of 401gm (GSI: 18%). This was the only large carp caught all season. No other fish was bigger than 1 500 grams. The average size caught was less than 1 000 grams. This is odd given this cohort of fish is now nine years old!
