Most Australian states allow stocking farm dams with native fingerlings. Before you stock fingerlings please check with you authorities to see what you are permitted to stock.

In Queensland unlawful stocking under section 90 of Fisheries Act 1994, can attract fines up to 2000 penalty units each unit is about $75.

* Before you stock a dam you should check that you are allowed to do so. Serious environmental consequences may result from stocking the wrong species. In Queensland there strict regulations controlling the fish you may stock.

MOSQUITO MANAGEMENT using Australian native fish. Our hatcheries can supply appropriate native fish to help manage mosquito wrigglers. If you want to stock a pond or dam for mosquito control it is best to stock small species such as Australian rainbows, freshwater hardy heads, glass fish, blue-eyes, etc. Most streams in Queensland have rainbows in them but each stream has a unique colour morph. It would be a disaster to stock the wrong colour morph. If they were to escape and breed with the local colour morph, your local colour morph may be lost forever. The best way to get the right colour morph is to catch your own. It is legal in Queensland for you to catch a small number from your local streams and stock them in your dam. click here for more information.
