Experiments on the effects of the herbivorous fish, grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella Val.) on aquatic vascular plants, algae, zooplankton and phytoplankton and the importance of water temperature on the success of weed control



Experiments on the effects of the herbivorous fish, grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella Val.) on aquatic vascular plants, algae, zooplankton and phytoplankton and the importance of water temperature on the success of weed control



Technical Report, Agricultural and Food Research Council Weed Research Organization (77): 22



Grass carp introduced into outdoor polyethylene lined polls and channels first consumed Elodea canadensis and then Cladophora sp.; Ceratophyllum demersum increased. In larger channels, E. canadensis regrowth was also controlled by the fish, but mature plants were resistant.
