Native Fish Management Plan

Fishing for our Region's Future

Queensland Murray-Darling Committee and the National Carp Control Plan are hosting a series of community briefings in Charleville, St George, Goondiwindi and Toowoomba in late February and early March of 2018 with the aim of improving the future of native fish and carp control in local waterways.

The NCCP is specifically investigating ways to control carp centered through the use of a species-specific virus known as ‘Cyprinid herpes virus 3’ (the carp virus), how it will act as a biocontrol agent, while ensuring that risks associated with its potential use are identified and mitigated.

Valuable input from the community living and fishing within the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin will help inform the National Carp Control Plan and contribute to an improved recreational fishing experience through a catchment-wide Native Fish Management Plan.
