Good article about the destructive side of carp.
I know this is Australia but we have problems with carp here.

I caught and removed more than 5,000 carp from Central Jersey waters since 1999. Largest were 42.5, 33, 32 and 32 lbs.

Hope they do better with carp than they did with those cane toads.

Well Maryland thought they stopped the snake heads when they poisoned the pond in Crofton. The invasive species seem to be impossible to get ride of. Good luck with the carp.

Now it seems to be gaining acceptance that Snakeheads are fun to catch and good to eat.

Wood snake heads have become very sought after. I'm hoping to catch one this yrs. Some of them are getting BIG. I was talking to two fellows at wmart. They've caught some. Said the hit like a truck n pull like a train๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
