A paper on the release of KHV in Australia to reduce wild carp

December 20, 2016 - 09:17

You can get the link to the paper by clicking on the title or picture above.  Meanwhile, here's what the Fish Vet -Dr.  Richmond Loh - had to say about it:

"The first paragraph is filled with assumptions about carp being a major cause of (rather than carp being a symptom of) aquatic ecosystem damage.

Here it also states that once KHV is released, there will be continued release of more devastating viruses, to kill fish that develop natural immunity.

But what I find most disconcerting is that it says, “the release of CyHV-3 undoubtedly represents a unique and exciting natural experiment…”

Would it be okay for me to say that I’m not in the least bit excited?"
