IDNR Report

A July carp kill at Roush Lake in Huntington County resulted from a virus that only affects common carp and koi, according to DNR fisheries biologists.

Fish collected from the lake and sent to Purdue University in July tested positive for koi herpes virus (KHv).

On July 20, DNR officials received reports of dead carp in the lake. Five days later, fisheries biologist Jed Pearson collected dead carp and captured six live carp and transported them to Purdue's Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab (PADDL) in West Lafayette.

Anglers who reel in a large fish can now submit their Fish of The Year and Record Fish entries to the DNR online.

A new online form allows anglers to fill out data quickly and email a photo and other documentation. It is at www.wildlife.IN.gov/9453.htm.

"It allows anglers to enter right from the field from any internet connected device," said Michelle Cain, wildlife information specialist with the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. "We're hoping that by making the process simpler we will get more entries this year."

Indiana tracks big fish two ways. The State Record Fish program documents the largest fish by species ever caught in Indiana. The Fish of the Year program documents the largest fish by species caught in a given year.
