Don’t dump that fish

Stirling Times - - News -

The City is urg­ing res­i­dents to help pro­tect our en­vi­ron­ment by not re­leas­ing fish such as koi into our lakes, wet­lands or wa­ter­ways. De­lib­er­ate or ac­ci­den­tal re­lease has led to epi­demic lev­els of non-na­tive fish through­out Aus­tralia. It has a dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect on our na­tive wildlife and the en­vi­ron­ment through com­pe­ti­tion for food, spread of dis­ease, killing na­tive species and de­stroy­ing nat­u­ral habi­tats.

If you no longer want your fish, please give them to an aquar­ium, school or nurs­ing home. If you can’t find them a new home, the WA Koi So­ci­ety has a ser­vice to take un­wanted koi. Visit www.koiclubwa.com for de­tails.
