This symposium provides a forum to share research across geographical regions related to control of the four invasive carp species. Of particular interest is work that can be applied in different geographic regions to combat the spread of these fishes. This includes field control strategies, barriers, modeling and any other research that strives to improve control efforts. We also plan to have an open discussion forum to allow researchers and managers working in different systems to interact with each other with the goal of improving our individual efforts.
