Carpinator quits

COTTON growers have backed the appointment of the so called ‘Carpinator’ to improve the environment of river systems in the Murray Darling Basin...

“The potential environmental outcomes of the National Carp Control Plan should be recognised by governments within the Murray Darling Basin Plan, and so we call for a significant reduction in the amount of water recovery required to achieve environmental outcomes,” Mr Murray said.

“In the past a credit to the Sustainable Diversion Limit of 200GL has been proposed, and we believe this would be an appropriate outcome once the Carp Control Plan is in effect.”

The CARPINATOR: Matt Barwick has stepped down from the role as national coordinator for the National Carp Control Plan.
