Report a pest fish

Recommended Posts

Help stop the spread of spotted tilapia (Tilapia mariae) in Far North Queensland. Spotted tilapia were recently discovered in the Walsh River (north of Chillagoe) and near Bruce Weir (near Dimbulah, west of Mareeba). If you’re out fishing in the area and catch a tilapia, take a photo and report it online https://goo.gl/sHRKWs

wow, Talapia have the potential to be worse than carp in our waterways. I cant understand why anyone would introduce them into our waters.

Some one probably dumped them out of their fresh/salt water aquarium when they became slack and couldn't be bothered cleaning and keeping the water up to scratch..

cheers

This is what happens when the "Pet Shops / Aquariums" sell these weird exotic fish !!!!

People let them go in the Wild !!!

Should NOT be Available in the 1st Place !!!!!

Might as well let a massive pile of "Oscars" loose !!!!!!
