Carp Advocate Accused of Illegal Stocking of Carp


David Moore President of the American Carp Society and Past President of the Carp Anglers Group accused of 25 counts of stocking Carp in Public Lakes in Washington County court in Bartlesville Oklahoma.

Jan 24, 2006

By HuntingNet Staff

According to Washington County Oklahoma Court Clerk Records Mr. Moore is accused of multiple counts of stocking a City Lake with Israeli or Mirror Carp. Carp are very prolific and destructive and have earned their status as one of the most destructive, invasive, fish in the world as documented by this and many other studies http://horticulture.coafes.umn.edu/vd/h5015/00papers/baldry.htm . Many state and federal regulations limit or ban carp’s stocking and possession.

Mr. Moore, according to court documents, detailed his stocking on the forum section of the Website of the Carp Anglers Group http://www.carpanglersgroup.com . That Section of the website has now been closed to the public. The discussion detailed his intentions, with pictures and various discussions of other public lakes to stock to improve carp fisheries. List Members also discussed their stocking plans.

Unfortunately now the Lake will have to be managed by fisheries personnel to control its exploding carp population. The Carp management will be an expensive and ongoing concern for the Town of Bartlesville.

If guilty as charged Mr. Moore’s act of eco terrorism is even more concerning as he is very well informed on the issue and it shows contempt for the public fishery and law enforcement. Mr. Moore financially profits from guided Carp fishing trips via his ACS guide service it is apparent he has decided to use the public waterways as his personal carp factory.

The Hard facts:

Mr. Moore appears often in Magazines and Newspapers as a Carp advocate most recently in this Wall St Journal article http://www.news-leader.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060105/LIFE06/601050304/1037

Washington county clerk’s office.....918-337-2870 case number is WL05734 and subsequent numbers up to WL05758 for TOTAL of 25 charges it will be tried in Judge Gerkins court March 2nd 2006 by jury trial.
