How does one use 10 tonnes of dead carp?

Curtin University researchers are investigating options for the sustainable use of the carp biomass that could result from the potential release of Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (carp virus), under the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP). The research project, assessment of options for utilisation of virus-infected carp, involves laboratory-based processing trials, as well as commercial-scale trials of processes that produce usable carp-based products including fertilisers, compost, fishmeal and aquaculture feed ingredients.

139 years and still relevant

The Dimboola Banner celebrated its 139th birthday last Friday.  The first publication of the Banner was printed on May 10, in 1879. After many successful years of publication a takeover bid was made in 1921, however the bid failed and an opposing newspaper, the Dimboola Chronicle, went into publication. The Banner remained robust and absorbed the Chronicle in 1930. There have been several owners over the years including the Barry family and in latter years the Ward family from Warracknabeal who took over the newspaper well over ten years ago, to ensure its survival.
