Cyprinus carpio


Over one hundred years ago, European carp (Cyprinus carpio) were introduced to Australia to clean out the channels, but after a while they became a huge problem. Our local hero, Noel Penfold, runs and owns Murray Darling Fisheries near Wagga Wagga and he knows a lot about fish. His job at the Murray Darling Fisheries is to breed native fish to help keep the population of good fish in our waterways
