Carp Removal from Ponds

As part of the water quality improvement program for the main pond in Sir Joseph Banks Park, Council will be removing the noxious freshwater pest fish European Carp from the pond this week.  A permit has been obtained from the NSW Department of Industry & Investment in accordance with their Control Plan for the Noxious Fish Carp (Cyprinus carpio).  The fish will be netted on 3-4 occasions to reduce overall numbers.  Once the fish have been removed and the water quality of the pond improves, native fish will be re-introduced.
