peter - you have echoed pretty much the conventional wisdom in the US regards carp. Most of our professional Game & Fish experts (similar to your EA) hold these views.quote:Originally posted by peter
Due to the spread of Carp the sport fishing in some areas has drastically declined. This is is blamed by some on the sheer numbers of carp now present in Lakes & rivers, which as well as forcing the natural fish out of their habitat are believed to eat the eggs of any sport fish that successfully spawn.Indeed in some areas Carp are seen as little more than Vermin.
You wouldn't want to be a carp in Australia.
