SURVEY for Freshwater management class

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am currently in a freshwater management class and I need at least ten people to do a survey for my assignment. If you could please answer my five questions it would be appreciative. Thank you.

 

1. In Connecticut (Connecticut River), there is a creel limitation on carp. Do you believe there should be one ? What about in your area?

2. With this regulation, the limitation of common carp is 5 and trophy is 1 with a 26 inch maximum. Do you think that this is fair?

3. Do you notice a significant abundance of capturing carp, that in which we need to conserve and protect them?

4.  On a scale of 1 to 10, What would you say is the importance of protecting common carps? (1= no importance at all, no change needed in protecting them ; 5 = I see a difference, we could do some things to protect them ; 10= They need more conservation) (You can pick any numbers in between these three respectively).

5. On a scale of 1-10, How fair do you think this new regulation is overall? ( 1= The regulation does not affect me ; 5= It affects me, but I can deal with it; 10= It affects me and my catching) (You also can pick number in between these three respectively).

1=no & no

2= no

3=no

4=1

5=1

If you are managing a water of any kind it should be managed to the exclusion of invasive species regardless of how introduced.  Popularity and politics should not be the determining factor in maintaining wild species or their habitat. Carp are essentially an invasive  domesticated species introduced to the wild to the detriment of the fisheries and as such should be extirpated.

How do you feel about brown trout as just one of many possible examples?  Or say rainbow trout in Crane Creek?

I am attending a master's program in Biology from the university of Nebraska. This class is an elective for me. I live in an area in NY that does not have much anglers to question in person. So he said go on these forums. We all have to do a survey for an assignment on a species that anglers deal with. 

Who is "he"?  Are you in Nebraska or NY?

If you really want some answers on your survey post it on the forum below. There are guys from all over on there so maybe there will be somebody from CT, or NE, or NY, or wherever.

if you want to play the non-native invasive card all Missouri Salmonidae, Muskies, stripers (and by default hybrid stripers) Chinese ring necked pheasant (displace our native prairie chickens) all bass/walleyes and pike west of the rockies.

It can be debated that common carp are not a detriment to native species in every water they occur many many waters considered trophy common carp waters are also trophy bass/walleye/pike waters as well we have debated that to ad nauseam on this very forum. its the old myths that keep being perpetuated to support eradication/renovation industries in states like NE-MN-WI that supply jobs to state employees....the rise to common carp being a $ generated sport fish in states like Texas, New York and Connecticut, you knew it was only a matter of time this was going to happen
