Carp is very high in Omega 3 and Omega 6.

Carp has been used for medicinal purposes with the American Indians for many centuries. The mothers to be would walk many miles to the areas where they could get carp that were ripe with healthy eggs (Roe). They ate this to lower their cholesterol and with the belief to give them a healthier offspring.

Carp Roe was steamed and feed the elderly and sick as it was easy to digest and was also considered to be a well balanced food as it is the matter for the start of life.

Whole Fish




In 2003 K & C Fisheries Global Pty Ltd developed a process to enable the production of a high quality value Carp Roe for human consumption. The roe removed from the carp harvested by K & C Fisheries Global Pty Ltd is primararily proccessed at our factory and then sent on into Europe for further proceesing into a product called Taramas (commonally known here in Australia as Caviar dip)

K & C Fisheries Global Pty Ltd delivers the Roe product in chilled/salted form, as opposed to the frozen format as supplied by other suppliers. This saves the client approximately two days of production time in the defrosting and preparation (washing and seperating) of the frozen product.

The chilled product eliminates the risk of loss of quality and of the benifit to the client with the reduction of production time. The product is packaged in enviromentally considerate reusable plastic pails. These plastic pales provide an additional product to the client to on sell to farmers for seal feed bins and water buckets.

The photos show the difference in quality and presentation to that of Australia. Both products are basicaly salted fish Roe in a mayonaise base. The Taramas is the oringal greek recipy of approx 12,000 years. It actualy highlights the Carp roe (Eggs).

Due to the fact that Carp Europe, Asia and the middle East is used mainly for Human comsumption not much in those areas is used for fertilizer.

The fact that Australians did not have that same appreciation of carp and saw it as a pest gave the oppurtunity to develope fertilizers from it. This gave way to Carp being the basis of the one of Australias best known liquid fertilizers, Charlie Carp. All Carp used in this process are treated at the same standard as for human consumption. You can’t use a rotten resource to make a top quality product.
