Carp in Malheur Lake Marsh - An Analysis of the Problem and Alternative Solutions

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

The Malheur Lake is the largest fresh water marsh in western North America. The Silvies River from the Blue Mountains and the Donner und Blitzen River from the Steens Mountain find their final destination in the marsh. Malheur marsh has been important to wildlife, particularly migratory birds, since before recorded history of the area. Waterfowl have nested and raised their young on the lakes as well as resting during migration by the hundreds of thousands. Particularly famous are the nesting colonies of water and marsh birds. These included pelicans, cormorants, herons, egrets, ibis and terns. Nesting colonies of egrets were so famous that plume hunters in the late 1800's nearly eliminated them. In reaction to this, President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908 gave protective status as the Lake Malheur Reservation. Since then management of the marsh has been as a refuge. However, management has generally been limited to protection. Little physical manipulation has occurred, leaving the marsh in a near natural state.
