Like the rabbit virus, resistance will build in the remaining Carp.
It still going to take fisherman to donate their time say twice a year for Carp days.
Rip into them and help get rid of some of them.
if some companies? ran Competitions with prizes. Largest. Special weight. Junior. Female.
And its pretty hard to have a ringa bring in a fish from elsewhere as they breakdown so quickly and who would care its one less in the water.
But the local Shire would be needed to waive tip fees for dumping the carcass's more than once they have demanded I pay.
like they do at Bairnsdale but more often its got to have some benefit even if its just teaching juniors.
Too many take their recreation pastime, without thinking about who is it that's going to protect our waterways.
Rather than club trips to fish for the normal catch, club trips for the "Battle of the Carp" we should all be Pro-active.

Oh yea of little faith.
They will still be there even if a virus is released, the hardy variety that can stand and survive a virus and breed.
It is "US" fisherman that need to get stuck in start to erode the stock available.
So your saying 500 years, 8 generations of your children future wont be able to fish fresh/brackish water for native fish only carp.
If your version comes of the future, no cod no natives at all only swamp and carp.
No! to start Fisheries Victoria should start a Carp challenge all day every day, a chance to get you name on the challenge board with a prize announced annually.
Negativity does nothing but allows them to breed more.

I don't think that the virus is the answer either but what you are proposing is never going to work, go to lake Burrumbeet and see how many carp you catch in a sitting, they have carp culls there every year and more and hundreds are taken out but yet thousands more are still in there, that's only one waterway

So what sit on your hands and say its not worth trying.
If hundreds are taken out, what if none were taken out wipe Burrumbeet of the map.
Which waterway is next, maybe not in your time but what about your grandkids.
Something has to be done, and it needs everybody.
just think carp induced change to the waterways, slower water, pooling of dead water channels, Hello Mozzies.
Haven't we got enough mozzies without letting carp produce more dead water.
In Victoria now we have more, Ross River virus, Bairnsdale ulcer, and mozzie related disease that the doctors have to diagnose that they don't know.
Sitting on your hands only produce a negative.
