Separating out the carp

Separating out the carp

A carp separation cage has been installed at Bumbuggan Creek, south east of Condobolin, in an effort to fight an explosion of carp in the Lachlan River. This is the second cage to be put in the Lachlan River catchment, the other being on Island Creek near Condobolin. The cages are positioned on the exit gates of a fishway and exploit the fact that carp jump when faced with a barrier.
The carp jump into a holding cage, where they stay trapped until they are removed. Native fish are not caught in these traps.

The installation of the carp cages is part of a collaborative effort involving NSW DPI, Lachlan Catchment Management Authority, South Australian Research and Development Institute, Department of Sustainability and Environment (Vic), State Water Corporation, Kingfisher Research Pty Ltd, the Victorian Department of Primary Industries and the commercial carp fishers K & C Fisheries Global Pty Ltd. For more information contact Martin Asmus (Narrandera Fisheries Centre) on 02 6958 8204 or see:

Saw a story on these cages on the box a year or two ago. They seem to work extremely well.
