Pest fish

Non-native fish should never be released into waterways. They compete with native species, which greatly reduces native fish numbers and affects their habitat.

To help us stop the spread of pest fish:

Some fish pose such a grave danger that they have been declared noxious pests by Queensland law. These fish cannot be kept, hatched, reared or sold. Members of the public are encouraged to report any suspicious or unlawful activities relating to the catching or breeding of noxious fish to the 24 hour Fishwatch hotline on 1800 017 116. For additional information, please contact us on 13 25 23.
