You can tell him that the fine for a FIRST OFFENCE for transporting carp to another water is $15,000:

$15,857.00 Noxious aquatic species - bring into Victoria, take, keep or possess, sell, transport, put into container, release into
protected waters - first offence

A second offence is $31,714.00


As to failing to kill carp under the Fisheries Act that is considered to be a Contravention of Order in Council or permit (Angling license which has a condition the killing of carp) with a maximum fine of $3,171.00

Give him the figures, they might alter his thinking- tell him he might leave his DNA on the carp he transports! ;-)

If it was up to me anyone transporting and releasing a noxious fish into a water in which they do not already exist would receive a mandatory goal term. That is precisely how we got into the environmental disaster we have with carp which even with millions of dollars we might never be able to fix.

Then again, the use of the rattan cane might be better given the fact that people in custody these days riot when they don't get pizza on Friday night!

No where near excessive, at a fishing presentation last night, VFA presented the costs of looking at carp eradication, there has been over $35mill spent by states & federal Govt over the last 20years on how we can remove them without causing other pescatorial losses.
