Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I believe it's free to advertise in the Quokka, so why not have our little piece in the' Pets - Wanted' section?

Good idea, will look into that.

At this stage I have recieved calls and have found new homes for 5 D. Strigatus. 1 Unknown zebra, 5 Maingano, 3 Electric yellows, I northern blue and nearly 100 med to large goldfish from a pond closing down.

Hopefully the system continues to work as awell as it has been. A number of these fish have been handed into local shops, I have collected a few and Malaga has actually sent someone out to pick up some from a home.

Good work Tony & others.

It might pay us to mention the number of fish that have been rehoused when we meet with the Swan River Trust.

As a matter of interest, roughly how many have been rehoused?

Cheers

It is difficult to be precise as after the inital contact many people will then bring the fish to a local shop in return for store credit. The number we have physically rehoused we are looking at approx 130 fish, including 100 goldfish.

Some members may misunderstand the purpose of the Rescue scheme.

It is not a way of scoring free fish.

It was started so that instead of people disposing of their unwanted fish in local rivers & ponds etc, the PCS would rehouse them with experienced members who have the appropriate tanks to care for them.
There is not a choice of species, we get what people do not want.

Hope this clears it up

For those of you who may not know me, for the last 5 months I have been working with my local council to tackle this issue, I have routinely placed ads in the gum tree for fish rehousing as I have seen the first hand effects of non natives being released into waterways. I am not using this as a way to get free fish..

If anybody is interested to hear about what our local councils are actually doing about it feel free to contact me anytime smile.gif

Cheers
