A manual for carp control: The Tasmanian model

The Carp Management Program (CMP) was established within the Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) in 1995, in response to an incursion of Cyprinus carpio (carp) found in Lake Crescent, at Interlaken, in the central highlands of Tasmania. The incursion was contained to Lake Crescent and the upstream Lake Sorell. The integrated pest management strategies used have resulted in the successful eradication of carp from Lake Crescent and are ongoing in Lake Sorell.

This manual describes the progressive and integrated approaches that were employed to control/eradicate carp in Tasmania and that are likely to be of relevance elsewhere.
