Carp Make Good Fertiliser No Matter The State They're In


While a range of scientists have made their criticism of the carp herpes virus release known, the national Carp Control Plan Coordinator Matt Barwick has released the initial findings.

The results show that even in a state of severe decomposition, carp still make good fertiliser, this increases the ability to use the potentially millions of tons of rotting fish for commercial purposes.

Mr Barwick has welcomed the many discussions about the virus release, saying on going research should answer any questions people have about the impact of the virus on the river system.
