Validating the age of carp from the northern Murray-Darling Basin

Being able to accurately age carp is important for modelling population dynamics and potential response to various control strategies. This study examined the use of oxytetracycline (OTC) and otolith (ear bone) sampling to determine the formation of bone growth rings and in turn estimate the age of carp populations in the northern Murray–Darling Basin (MDB). […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Koi herpesvirus as a biological control for carp

Carp (Cyprinus carpio) are not native to Australia, but they now dominate fish communities throughout many inland waterways. Widespread  eradication of these established populations would be difficult, costly and complicated. Recently, cyprinid herpesvirus 3, commonly known as koi herpesvirus (KHV), has been proposed as a potential biological control method for carp in Australia. It has […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Introduction and distribution of carp in Australia

The first attempts to introduce carp to Australia were made in the late 1850s. The first of these into Tasmania in 1858 was not successful. An introduction to Victoria in 1859 succeeded in establishing a population in the Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, which persisted until 1962. Carp do not appear to have spread from there. […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Impacts of carp in Australia

Are carp a genuine cause of environmental damage in Australia, or are they merely a symptom of the poor health of our inland waters that has resulted from other causes? It is certainly true that carp are very good at exploiting degraded systems due to their ability to tolerate a wide range of water conditions. […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Use of chemicals as poisons for pest fish control

Chemicals can be used to eradicate small, isolated populations of pest fish quickly (spot removal) and with a moderate cost, provided that the benefits clearly outweigh any harm to native species and the environment. There have been a number of attempts to control pest fish in Australia and almost half of these have included the […]

PestSmart Factsheet: containment as a method for pest fish control

Containment and exclusion are critical actions in a rapid response to new pest fish incursions and in the ongoing management of established pest fish populations. Effective containment and exclusion limits the scale of potential environmental, social and economic impacts and reduces the area of management, thus reducing associated costs and resources. Physical and behavioural barriers […]

PestSmart Factsheet: the importance of public consultation for pest fish management

The management of pest fish in Australia needs a coordinated approach between all stakeholders including government, industry, research providers and the broader community. Community engagement, acceptance and support are essential to the success of an integrated pest fish management program; that is, one that takes many approaches. Produced by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre […]

PestSmart Case Study: Carp spawning hotspots

Carp have become the dominant species within the Murray–Darling Basin (MDB) and an effective, integrated strategy is needed to control them. An important first step of such a program is to determine the status and biology of carp populations throughout the MDB, and so identify any weaknesses that offer an opportunity for enhanced control. A […]

Will the community accept our science? Monitoring the community’s view about managing pest animals in Australia

The Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre Community Awareness Survey (CAS) has pioneered a new technique in opinion research called ‘Reading the Public Mind’ (RtPM). For a comparatively low cost, this technique has provided a ‘moving picture’ that charts the changes in public attitudes to invasive animals and their control through time and helps explain the […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Carp

Carp (Cyprinus carpio) were first introduced to Australia more than 100 years ago. They are now widely established throughout the Murray-Darling Basin and can also be found in all states and territories except the Northern Territory. Carp are very common in parts of this range in Australia and are considered to be one of our […]

Carp Population Biology in Victoria

Towards the end of the 1990s, there was no doubt that the majority of public opinion, and a mounting degree of scientific evidence, suggested that carp-control should be a primary concern for all agencies managing the fresh waters of southern Australia. There is now a realisation that when carp dominate a waterway, there are negative […]

Validation of mark-recapture population estimates for invasive common carp, Cyprinus carpio, in Lake Crescent, Tasmania

A mark-recapture study based on the Petersen method was implemented in 1998 to estimate the abundance of the invasive common carp, Cyprinus carpio L., in Lake Crescent, Tasmania. Multiple gear types were employed to minimise capture bias, with multiple capture and recapture events providing an opportunity to compute and compare Petersen and Schnabel estimates. A […]

Guidelines for planning carp fishing competitions

Many fishing and restocking clubs already host fishing competitions for native fish species and have a strong  understanding of what is needed to successfully run these events. There are several important differences in hosting competitions for carp, primarily because carp is a declared pest or noxious species. This guide aims to highlight these differences and […]

Making and using female sex pheromone implants which attract mature male common carp

The common carp, Cyprinus carpio, like many fish species, relies on pheromones (chemical signals that pass between members of the same species) to mediate reproductive success. At least five sex pheromones have been characterized in this species, one of which is released by ovulated females and attracts spermiated, receptive males. This pheromone is comprised of […]

Towards a national emergency response system for freshwater fish incursions

Freshwater fish incursions are a significant issue in Australia and a major biosecurity risk to freshwater ecosystems. The introduction of freshwater fish to areas outside of their natural range can exert various environmental, social and economic impacts. Currently 44 alien (meaning foreign in origin) freshwater fish species have been recorded in Australian freshwaters, with a […]

Management of freshwater fish incursions: a review

Biotic exchange has been predicted as the main driver of global biodiversity change in freshwater ecosystems. Activities associated with increasing globalisation are facilitating the introduction of freshwater fish outside their native range and dispersal ability. Introductions of alien freshwater fish may be accidental or intentional, and have been made for food resources, recreational fishing, ornamental […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Fishing as a carp control method

While fishing (commercial or recreational) is not an effective means of carp control in itself, it can be a valuable component of an integrated carp management program. Localised recreational carp fishing competitions, for example, are popular in many parts of Australia. Commercial carp fishing occurs in Victoria, South Australia and (irregularly) in New South Wales. […]

NSW Carp Control Plan 2010

Industry & Investment NSW (I&I NSW) has recently finalised a control plan for carp in NSW. A draft control plan was released for public comment from November 2009 through January 2010. Comments received on the draft have been taken into consideration and incorporated where possible in the development of the final control plan. I&I NSW would like […]

Carp in NSW: Assessment of distribution, fishery and fishing methods

The introduced common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is now widespread through much of inland New South Wales. Carp are considered a major pest and contributor to the environmental degradation of many inland waterways and reduction of native fish populations. Consequently, there has been considerable ongoing research, both nationally and within NSW, into ways of controlling carp […]
