Tilapia - Stop the Spread

Tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) is an aggressive pest fish regarded as one of the greatest threats to Australia’s aquatic ecosystem. They are a highly successful invasive species due to a number of key characteristics: rapid reproduction with maternal care, adaptable food requirements and tolerance for a wide range of aquatic habitats. Tilapia have progressively established populations in waterways throughout the south-east and northern Queensland and Western Australia since the 1970s.
