Carp Management Workshop – Mulgoa Creek

Are you a local landholder negatively impacted by carp? Or someone who wants to learn more about improving habitat for native fish?

About this Event

Saturday 27 June 2020 from 11am to 3pm. Address 850-882 Mulgoa Rd Mulgoa but enter via driveway to Penrith Waste Services at 842 Mulgoa Rd Mulgoa.

The workshop will be run by carp experts Katie Doyle and Cameron McGregor from the Charles Sturt University. Katie has over 10 years of experience in freshwater ecology, completed her PhD on the management of invasive common carp in the Murray-Darling Basin and has been part of various carp projects. Cameron has held several positions for both New South Wales and Victorian fisheries departments and has researched native fish and carp. Katie and Cameron will help us gain a better understanding of how to minimize the negative impact of carp without the use of expensive techniques such as electrofishing or trapping by contractors, methods which are often not feasible for private land holders or community groups.

The workshop is financed by a Commonwealth Government Environment Restoration Fund grant that Cumberland Land Conservancy (CLC) has received. Cumberland Land Conservancy Inc (CLC) is a volunteer operated not-for-profit charity dedicated to acquiring land for conservation. We focus on the ‘Cumberland Plain’ of Western Sydney, one of the most heavily cleared landscapes in Australia.
