This presentation will provide some background information on the epidemiology of the disease caused by cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3), and will then consider the major questions that arise whenever the use of CyHV-3 is promoted as a biocontrol agent, including why it is necessary to control carp in Australia, whether it will be effective and safe to use, and what virus strain(s) will be used.
