Fish in my dam

Post by fisho999 » Sun Jan 29, 2023 8:55 pm

Hey all,
I’m guessing the one with the red fins is a Redfin ( I know I’m a genius)
What’s the other one?

Yep, mosquitofish, so called because they were introduced from their native North America to control mosquito larvae. Now a nuisance, like a lot of introductions.

Agree with the other 2 responses. A noxious species like carp I'm pretty sure.

https://narrabrifishfarm.com.au/product ... ingerlings these will be a bit easier to get permits to release (if you want to do it legally) given the translocation issue with Bass. Either way, $200 for about 150 fingerlings of either species, $100 in small pellets to get them started and soon the mozzie fish will be gone
