I thought murray cod's were a "pest" species that are turned into fertilizer - Charlie Carp"


Did a little more digging and I think Murray Cod and Murray Carp are two different species - the Carp is indeed the pest/introduced species, not the cod which appears to be native to Australia

QUOTE
The Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii) is a large Australian predatory freshwater fish of the genus Maccullochella in the family Percichthyidae.[2] Although the species is called a cod in the vernacular, it is not related to the Northern Hemisphere marine cod (Gadus) species. The Murray cod is an important part of Australia's vertebrate wildlife—as an apex predator in the Murray-Darling River system—and also significant in Australia's human culture. The Murray cod is the largest exclusively freshwater fish in Australia, and one of the largest in the world. Other common names for Murray cod include cod, greenfish, goodoo, Mary River cod, Murray perch, ponde, pondi and Queensland freshwater cod.[2]

The scientific name of Murray cod derives from an early Australian fish researcher with the surname McCulloch and the river from which the explorer Major Mitchell first scientifically described the species, the Peel River.[2] This was for a number of years changed to M. peelii peelii to differentiate Murray cod from Mary River cod, which were designated as a subspecies of Murray cod. However, as of 2010, Mary River cod have been raised to full species status (M. mariensis), thus Murray cod have reverted simply to M. peelii.[3]

Murray cod populations have declined severely since European colonisation of Australia due to a number of causes, including severe overfishing, river regulation, and habitat degradation and are now a listed threatened species. However, they once inhabited almost the entire Murray-Darling basin, Australia's largest river system, in very great numbers.

A long-lived fish, adult Murray cod are carnivorous and mainly eat other fish. The species exhibits a high degree of parental care for their eggs, which are spawned in the spring and are generally laid in hollow logs or on other hard surfaces. Murray cod are a popular angling target and aquaculture species. Often available through the aquarium trade, they are also a popular


They also eat Carp - so are "good guys" biggrin.gif

QUOTE
The Murray cod is the apex aquatic predator in the rivers of the Murray-Darling basin,[2] and will eat almost anything smaller than itself and anything in its way, including finned fishes such as smaller Murray cod, golden perch, silver perch, bony bream, eel-tailed catfish, western carp gudgeon, and Australian smelt and introduced fish such as carp, goldfish, and redfin (English perch), as well as crustaceans such as yabbies, freshwater shrimp, and Murray crayfish. Fish compose the majority of the diet of mature Murray cod in lowland river and impoundment habitats, and that Murray cod are apex predators in these habitats.[19] Murray cod have also been known to eat ducks, cormorants, freshwater turtles, water dragons, snakes, mice, and frogs. The observations of the recreational fishermen fishing for Murray cod with surface lures at night reveal that the popular description of Murray cod as a demersal ambush predator is only partially correct. While this behaviour is typical during the day, at night, Murray cod are active pelagic predators, venturing into shallow waters and frequently taking prey from the surface.[20]

You are partly correct. Carp will feed anywhere along the bottom or the sides. You can often hear a slurp sound around the channels in this area.
The slurping is the carp sucking up the mud and creating a mess.
Quite a few channels have been lined with HDPE plastic sheeting.
It stops leaks, and has the added benefit of of making the channels less attractive to carp.
The size limit for Cod is between 55 cm and 75 cm.
You have to put the big ones back.
The bigger one (I once caught a 65kg one a few year back )will swallow a carp whole in one gulp.
The Meditterannean people love car (they are called Tilapia in some countries).
I once had a neighbor of Italian descent come in an put a dragnet through one of our dams.
He took all the carp with him and put them in a large tank, where he changed the water frequently
Seems that takes the muddy taste out of the.
The meal his wife cooked up for us was magnificent, though I don't know how much of the flavour was due to the other secret tasty ingredients she put in!

confirms the "pest" tag
yep, officially a pest ... even have their own govt website !

the challenge is that carp are bottom feeders, and dig up the mud, making the water cloudy.

Murray cod live for 50 years, are predatory (even eat baby carp) and grow to be big units. Other native fish are endangered by carp invading habitats, but the MC holding their own in parts of the ecosystem

Thanks nipper. Kinda confirms the "pest" tag

QUOTE
Carp have been identified as a priority pest species, both in Australia and internationally. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has named carp one of the world’s most invasive fish species.

A recent national survey reported that the public perceive carp as the fourth most significant vertebrate pest in Australia (after cane toads, feral cats and rabbits).


Perhaps they are only a "pest" in native waterways - this company uses ponds - "The fish are being grown in cages in dedicated ponds, using water that is eventually used on crops."
