Carp are a pest but make up about 90 per cent of river fish. The Federal Government plans to give them herpes to kill them off hoping their group sex habit would help spread the disease. On the other hand, native fish and their eggs are being wiped out by cold water, which also kills the mood for sex, experts say. As all sides of politics bicker over the Murray Darling Basin Plan and how to save the rivers plants and animals as well as human jobs, some are looking to alternative ways to heal the system. Water Minister Barnaby Joyce has appointed Matt Barwick as Carpinator, in charge of the carp herpes program. Mr Barwick said that get Orgies could help wipe out frisky river pests ting rid of the carp, which churn up the river bed, would help sunlight get through, which would in turn increase plant and bug life that native fish need. Carp orgies and better conditions for native fish sex could both help restore the River Murray. Thirteen-degree water passed over where cod spawn will result in 100 per cent mortality of cod eggs and the effects can persist for hundreds of kilometres downstream from the dam, he said. National Irrigators Council chief executive Tom Chesson said that eliminating carp could be the biggest game changer well see in our lifetime. There are more carp orgies in the Coorong than just about anywhere else, Mr Chesson said. Its the perfect carp breeding environment ... its not all about flow.
