Conspiracy carp. Something you will find interesting.

Some digging done by one of my clients in response to one of my posts:

"I read a few articles on the history on the introduction of carp and they described how the Government assisted angling groups to introduce carp and their first attempts to introduce carp failed because the waterways were healthy and the natives out competed them, it wasnt until after farmers destroyed the waterways and natives were struggling that the later introduction of carp became a success, now the carp get blamed for all the damage done by farming/agriculture."

Looks like the presence of carp is merely an indicator of the poor state of health of the waterways. They’re not the pest that’s causing environmental devastation.


Yours sincerely,

  1. A donkey seems to learn after one mistake. Our Australian government still doesn’t seem to realise the devastating consequences of their plans. Atrocious inhuman methods of culling animals with strychnine, 1080 and myxomatosis without any evidence of eradicating these targeted species should have learned us a lesson.
    We have already made the mistake of introducing the carp, let us please not make an additional mistake by using a devastating disease of which we cannot oversee the consequences, just serious suffering for fishes and fish owners for generations to come. It is time we learn from our mistakes.
    Many people outside the metropolitan area are dependent on surface water, we are too, how are we to replenish our dams, ponds and aquariums in the future?

    Hello Dirk,
    i agree totally with your comments, a ridiculous and reckless act of destruction yet again at the hands of our Government, not even considering other ways as they think this is by far the best solution, for me and all aquatic/ornamental fish keepers, including business’s in the industry of fish farms etc in Australia ,well , we disagree!!
