Increased and targeted effort to eradicate carp means stepping up our work effort

It is estimated that over 95% of the carp population in Lake Sorell has been removed but this does not mean we have pulled back in effort, in fact we have increased our effort significantly.  Gill net fishing pressure alone has been increased 5000% over the last 3 years in actual net hours.  There has also been an increase in the number of traps and fyke nets being used along with an electro-fishing.

To assist with this labour intensive work a hydraulic net reel has been fitted to one of the IFS boats and a new boat will be launched in the coming weeks. This boat has been purpose designed to assist with the servicing of this intense gill net effort.

We believe we are getting close in eradicating all carp in Tasmania but won’t slow until we do.
