Carp Reminder for Fishers
Fishers are reminded of the rules that apply to catching European carp in the River Torrens, Mawson Lakes and all other freshwater watercourses in South Australia.
 European carp are an exotic species and as a result, it is an offence for this species to be returned to the water alive.
 Manager Compliance Operations, Paul Tatarelli said there had been an increasing number of reports recently of fishers catching and then releasing carp.
 "As an introduced species that has adapted to local conditions, European carp dominate many of our freshwater rivers and streams and have a major impact on the health of these waterways and the native fish that populate them" Mr Tatarelli said.
 "Any carp that are caught by recreational fishers should be destroyed humanely and disposed of responsibly".
Closures & Bans
Seasonal closures are declared to protect some heavily fished species during their breeding seasons. Female blue crabs, giant crabs, yabbies and rock lobsters with external eggs are protected because they are close to the completion of their breeding cycle. If caught, they must be returned to the water immediately. ..... Click Here for More.
