IFS Report October 2010

by Sarah Graham

There are a couple of interesting things happening on the Carp Management front at Lake Sorell. For instance, Professor Peter Sorrensen, from the USA has been working with the Service in the carp pheremone trials at Lake Sorell which are being conducted at the moment. And there have been some interesting findings about the behaviour of juvenile carp, which have been observed to favour different habitats in the Lake compared with the adult fish. I will follow up with these stories over the next week or two.

However Inland Fisheries Inspectors interviewed around 60 whitebaiters over two days and most were happy with the fishing despite the low catch rates.
