In many cases involving the use of grass carp, overabundant aquatic weed infestations are first treated with an aquatic herbicide to reduce biomass.

    Of the Grass Carp, there have been approximately 28 captures since in the waters or tributaries of Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, and Lake Erie. Of those tested nine were found to be “diploid”, or fertile. It is likely that the fish caught were escapees from areas where populations were being used for aquatic plant control, or live releases.

The ability of grass carp to consume and utilize aquatic plants depends on the size of both plants and fish. Additional factors which influence the feeding behavior of grass carp include their size, age, gender, and population density, and the species, abundance, and location of plants within a body of water.

Biotic factors that may affect aquatic plant growth include epiphytes (plants that grow upon other plants), pathogens–diseases, and direct and indirect competition from other vegetation, which will ultimately determine the dispersal and establishment of a specific species (Rojo et al.Walsha et al.

A change in any of these Cited by: 2.Stands of aquatic plants have a much richer invertebrate population than unvegetated stands, both in terms of the diversity of species and total numbers of bugs.
