Invasion. It’s a word often used in Australia to influence popular and political opinion. So why has carp gone from a maligned invasive specie to public enemy number one in waterway health?

And why has the Australian Conservation Foundation welcomed the announcement of funding to prepare for the release of a carp-specific herpes virus in the Murray-Darling Basin?
Please join us for an informal discussion over the limited information made publically available on the carp herpes virus. This is a topic we are keen to follow and discuss from an integrated catchment management perspective.
