Brief Summary

Read full entry
Grass carp originally came from East-Asia and can reach a length of 120 centimeters. The grass carp was first released in 1977 by water managers as a biological combatant for excessive aquatic plant growth. Since the fish can only spawn successfully when the water temperature rises to 25 degrees Celsius, in combination with a rapidly rising water level, the grass carp is probably unable to reproduce in the Netherlands.
