Event description

Description

Interested members of the ACT community are invited to attend a community briefing session on Monday 19 February about how the carp virus could potentially be released from next year onwards as part of the National Carp Control Plan.

Carp are Australia’s worst introduced freshwater fish and now dominate the waterways of the Murray–Darling Basin. They muddy the water through their bottom-feeding behaviour, which has flow-on effects for plants, invertebrates, other fish, and bird life.

The NCCP project team wants to understand the ACT's waterways – what's important about them, how you use them, and your concerns and questions so that they can be addressed in the plan. The session is one of more than 40 being held in carp-affected areas in Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia and is a valuable opportunity for the community to provide local insights into issues which need to be considered.
