More about this event

This presentation will provide some background information on the epidemiology of the disease caused by cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3), and will then consider the major questions that arise whenever the use of CyHV-3 is promoted as a biocontrol agent, including why is it necessary to control carp in Australia, will it be effective, is it safe to use, and what virus will be used.

Learning Objectives - partiticpants will understand:

1. Why it is necessary to control carp in Australia

2. How using the KHV virus can be effective in controlling or eradicating invasive carp

3.  Safety issues in introducing the KHV virus.
