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.
