There’s only one good European Carp and that’s a dead European Carp.
Since being introduced to our waterways, European carp have been responsible for the destruction of vast areas of our precious inland rivers, lakes and streams. Their feeding habits increase the muddiness or turbitiy of the water, river banks are undermined causing trees to fall into the water.
This in turn 'chokes' the river causing many problems for our native fish such as the murray cod, golden perch and catfish. Carp in turn feed on the eggs of the native fish further endangering them.
But once dead, it’s a different story. We turn them into Charlie Carp, the richest fertiliser. Rich because Charlie Carp is made from the whole fish and not scraps like other fish fertilisers. And the richest because this environmental pest is full of protein.
