Hill, University of Florida Everywhere you look, plants of all kinds are awakening to recent rains, longer days, and fertile soils; and this includes aquatic plants as well! Florida has hundreds of aquatic plant species, and they are an often-overlooked feature of Florida’s. Grass Carp? Grass carp (Ctenopharyn-godon idella), also known as white amur, is a fish native to Asia that feeds only on aquatic plants. They were intro-duced to Florida in to control nuisance aquatic plant growth. In , a method to sterilize grass carp was developed, which enabled the production of the triploid grass carp used today.
Use of Grass Carp as a Biological Control: Integrating the use of grass carp in aquatic plant management plans is usually cost effective. In many cases involving the use of grass carp, overabundant aquatic weed infestations are first treated with an aquatic herbicide to reduce biomass.

Inland Fish Division.]. Controlling aquatic vegetation with grass carp is one of the options available to pond owners with aquatic plant problems. In many situations, the use of grass carp is an economical, long lasting, and effective option.
However, grass carp are not appropriate for every pond with abundant aquatic plants. If you are having issues with aquatic plant control in your pond, you might consider introducing grass carp to your pond. These fish, originally from Asia, have been imported to the United States since the 's to intentionally release into our waterways for aquatic plant control.
The Penn State University College of Agricultural Science and the Fish and Boat Commission cooperated to produce a 22 page booklet entitled Pond Management & Aquatic Plant Control. Subjects covered include construction, maintenance and management of a pond, types of aquatic plants, and management alternatives for plant control.
We investigated effects of triploid grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella on aquatic macrophyte communities, water quality, and public satisfaction for 98 lakes and ponds in Washington State stocked.
This approach may also encourage growth of desirable native aquatic plants. Converting unwanted weeds to valuable fish protein is an additional benefit of using grass carp. Additional Readings. Cross, D. Aquatic weed control using grass carp.
Fish Biol. A symposium was held in Gainesville on Marchto discuss the effects of stocking grass carp for aquatic plant control. The purpose of the workshop was to provide information related to the concern for habitat protection and the suitability of using grass carp for aquatic plant control in large lakes.

Grass carp present significantly different risks to the Lake Erie ecosystem compared to highly invasive bighead carp and silver carp. Adult grass carp commonly weighs more than 20 pounds and can grow up to 48 inches long.
The fish are primarily herbivorous. Because they eat such large quantities of aquatic vegetation, they can affect other. Status and Strategy for Grass Carp Management.
Scope. Invasive grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella), native to eastern China and eastern Russia, threaten the waters of the State of Michigan.
The goals of this document are to summarize the: • Current level of understanding on the biology and ecology of. Washington State have shown that use of grass carp for maintenance of desired level of vegetation has rarely been successful. Use of grass carp can also increase non native plants as grass carp selectively remove highly preferred native plants.
The table below lists some common aquatic plants and rates them by grass carp preference. Table 1. Aquatic plants are beneficial and a necessary part of lakes and reservoirs.
Also, some kind of plants are the main food source for aquatic animals. Plants are able to stabilize sediments, improve water clarity and add diversity to the shallow areas of lakes. On the other hand, overgrown plants can become a nuisance by hindering human uses of water and threaten the structure and function of Author: Yusuf Bozkurt, İlker Yavas, Aziz Gül, Beytullah Ahmet Balcı, Nurdan Coskun Çetin.

Grass carp grow rapidly and prefer to feed on rooted vegetation, although after five years of age, both their growth rate and their effectiveness at controlling aquatic plants slow considerably.
A major breakthrough came in the ’s with the development of techniques to produce sterile grass carp, incapable of reproducing.).
The grass carp is a native to larger coastal East Asian rivers with Paciﬁc drainage from latitudes 20° to 50° north and from longitudes ° to ° east (Fischer and Lyakh-novich, ). It was introduced to Europe for aquatic weed control and to improve ﬁsh .Aquatic Plant Management Options Aquatic plants are important and necessary components of a healthy lake ecosystem.
