About Us

Why pest fishing?

The biggest problem in our area is Tilapia, an African Cichlid that was first discovered in Queensland waterways in the late 70s. For around 40 years the species has bred and spread virtually untouched and now dominates most catchments in the South East Queensland area. They are capable of breeding at a very young age and can have spawns of over 1000 eggs several times a year. This alongside their incredible adaptability and ability to thrive in conditions that few other species can puts huge pressure on native species numbers.

Who we are.

We are Jason and Nicole. We love nothing more than exploring the waterways of South East Queensland. Our adventures take us far and wide in search of introduced fish species. Our main goal is to show those who are unfamiliar with our non native aquatic invaders what they are, the damage they do and to promote their responsible removal from our waterways.

Queensland Regulations.

  • Tilapia is a restricted noxious fish under the Biosecurity Act 2014.
  • it must not be kept, fed, given away, sold, or released into the environment without a permit.
  • if caught these species must be immediately humanely killed and disposed of responsibly away from the water body.
  • by law, everyone has a general biosecurity obligation (GBO) to take reasonable and practical steps to minimise the risks associated with restricted noxious fish under their control.
