Forrest Lake Pest Fishing Day

Where - Forrest Lake

When - 30 November 2014

Time - 7:00am

Learn how to identify pest fish species and the impact they pose on our native fish and aquatic habitat. During the event, residents will able to fish for ferals including African Tilapia (a hardy fish whose effective breeding habits can lead to it overrunning native species), Barred Grunter (a north Qld fish that has been released into southern waterways), other noxious fish such as carp, and ornamental fish commonly kept in home aquariums such as goldfish. To take part in the fishing activity, residents are asked to sign up at the registration marquee near the Stage area at the parklands where they will be directed to one of the designated fishing sites around the lake.
