Abstract

The current project aimed to undertake an intensive boat electrofishing program of Emu Lakes to remove both Koi Carp and Goldfish (and any other introduced fishes encountered). It also aimed to assess any change in the population abundance and structure that may have occurred since the last control event in December 2013. Finally, it aimed to provide a preliminary analysis of the age and growth of Koi Carp for the first time in a Western Australian system.
