Curley water weed is a southern African submerged macrophyte that has become a serious water weed in several countries including New Zealand after its introduction by the aquarium industry. It has been recorded in Australia, including Queensland, but is not considered to have established. The chapter describes the ecology and management of this weed. Control of further dispersal is considered critical to its management. It has also been considered for classical biological control and manipulation of grass carp densities has also been studied. Issues relating to the use of herbicides in freshwater systems are also discussed.
