CARP CHAT
HELP US STOP ILLEGAL FISH SMUGGLING
Help us get the word out there by
sharing our FB page. If you have any
information please contact us either
by e-mail, telephone or Facebook
and/or alternatively report it using
Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Everything is confidential and held
anonymously. When fish are illegally
smuggled, unfortunately the fish cannot be returned or held in quarantine.
Because the health status of smuggled fish is unknown. Even if these
fish arrive from France, the French
authorities will not take them back as
we cannot be certain that these fish
originated in France. Testing the fish
is destructive and therefore is not an
option. This is the least enjoyable part
of our job, but the potential for illegal
imports to introduce serious diseases
that do have the potential to decimate
our carp populations and the sport
cannot be underestimated. n
