How removing carp is helping the Glenelg River, the community and plants

Ridding our waterways entirely of carp might be an impossible dream, but what is realistic, is permanently removing as many as we can, how and when we can.

Late last year another 1.5 tonnes were removed from the Glenelg River with the aim of lowering their population to below 50kg/ha.

Through a carp fishing competition, local anglers pulled hundreds of the pest species from the waterways which were then transported to be turned into fertiliser.
