Opportunity to Bid on Large-scale Removal of Invasive Common Carp

As part of the Lake Mattamuskeet Aquatic Grass Restoration project, Mattamuskeet NWR is announcing an opportunity to bid on large-scale removal of invasive common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in Lake Mattamuskeet and adjacent canals. The objectives of the project are to remove large numbers and weight of the carp (minimum 450,000 lbs) and to remove carp at strategic locations to monitor the density of carp in the lake. The work will be done in compliance with all rules and regulations and in close consultation with US Fish and Wildlife Service, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, and the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries.

Additional information and application instructions can be found on the SAM.gov contract opportunity.
