I have witnessed bass destroy the balance of a dam in just a few years. They are not meant to be in our waters, nature has not evolved to accommodate them. Plain and simple!

In the dams in my area the bass are kept for the table as much as the kurper, so it is nothing to do with fishing etiquette.

Carp and other non indigenous kurper like Niloticus also find their way in eventually. In fact in my local dams the niloticus are now cross breading with the blues and reds, the up side is that the off spring grow huge and are great quarry on rod and line - as are bass.

I don't like it when the bass invade or are sneaked into an indigenous water systems, but it is inevitable.

If we can't stop it or change it, lets just enjoy our sport of angling, the more species the merrier.
