Carp Management Program attends National Carp Control Plan workshop

Last week, Jonah Yick, IFS Leader of the Tasmanian Carp Management Program attended a workshop in Canberra. The workshop was part of a larger project under the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP).

 

At the workshop there were specialists from all over the country including:


researchers of small and large fish,
plant scientists,
waterbird scientists,
amphibian (frogs and toads) researchers, and
bug scientists.


 

The workshop discussed how different levels of carp reduction from mainland waterways might affect the surrounding ecosystem. It also talked about water quality, system modelling, risk analysis, and economics.

Hopefully, the outcome of the workshop will assist the NCCP to:


plan an integrated approach to controlling carp in Australia’s waterways,
understand and manage the risks involved with the removal of carp,
quantify the benefit/cost analysis of the project, and
Inform stakeholder engagement.
