Monster Carp Musters

Monster Carp Musters

Narrabri’s 4th ‘Carp Muster’ saw 534 people flock to the banks of the Namoi River to try their hand at catching a carp. These fishers caught 2850 individual carp, weighing in at a total of nearly 1 tonne, or if laid head to tail, over 447m of carp. The Narrabri carp muster, part of the Namoi Aquatic Habitat Initiative, is an annual event organised and run by NSW DPI and the Narrabri Amateur Fishing Club. This year Boggabri Coal was a major sponsor and many local businesses in Narrabri also contributed generously. The community’s involvement in the Namoi Aquatic Habitat Initiative is not limited to catching carp – they are also planting trees, removing weeds, fixing erosion, fencing off the river and providing offstream watering points
for stock. For more information, contact Milly Hobson, NSW DPI, on 02 6763 1206.


Three other inland NSW towns have also held successful carp musters. Warren celebrated its second carp muster by removing 822kg of carp, that largest of which weighed over 8kgs. This event was funded by the Central West CMA through the Spot the Gambusia project. Collarenebri and Walgett had their first carp musters, both funded by Western and Namoi CMAs through the Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service. The enthusiasm
of the kids to catch a carp was unwavering and there was a large level of interest in both communities to run similar events in the future. For more information, contact Rodney Price, NSW DPI, on 02 6882 1216.
