Aquatic pests

It is illegal to release aquarium fish and aquatic plants into freshwater waterways in the Northern Territory (NT).

Releasing non-native fish and plants, or the water they have been living in, threatens the NT's freshwater ecosystems.

For more information on non-native plants, fish and snails go to the NT Government's page on freshwater pests.
