Something Fishy This Way Comes is reporting that environmentalists in Queensland, Australia are calling on the government to hasten their response to the presence of the invasive fish tilapia (Tilapia spp.) near a dam in north Queensland. While screens are supposed to be installed at the end of 2003, there are complaints that this is not soon enough, and great concern that the tilapia will escape in to the Gulf of Carpentaria. For another take on tilapia control, see this previous blog entry.
