Look. I love fishing. I love growing veggies. Particularly tomatoes. But I’ve never enjoyed European Carp!
Fresh fish caught by me, combined with a salad from my own garden. What’s not to love about that? Right?
European Carp is classified as a noxious pest in Victoria and most of Australia. It is illegal to release live carp into any waterways. Carp that you catch must not be returned to the water.
That’s because they are an introduced species whose behaviour has an extremely bad impact on Australian rivers, creeks and lakes.
