    10. Comment on European carp- Cyprinus carpio 17 hrs ago
      Yes Alexander ,we had some large areas in NSW flooded and now the flood water have reached the sea in South Australia via australias largest river( Murray river)
      The river has a gigantic problems with carp who have basically destroyed the aquatic flora and much of our native aquatic fauna in that river. Now all the juvenile carp being washed out to sea and die in the salt water.
