havent read it... interesting read as far as shrimp go :)

 

so question for anyone reading this... did they test these shrimp for disease ? was any found... these shrimp are so alike to the naked eye so how is anyone to tell the difference ? 

 

hypothetically speaking if this indistincta species replaced our current glass shrimp species will it effect anything ? as they live and survive in pretty much the same conditions ?

 

and what are the chances these shrimp and glass shrimp are actually decended from the same shrimp many years ago ?  

 

any shrimp nerds know the answers ?

There was a importer/exporter of live fish on Cleaver tce 30 odd years ago - for a time, they were funded by a grant through Fisheries WA, and water from there went down the carpark storm water drain - right into where the shrimp are now found. The fact that glass shrimp aren't there is not because of competition, but that that drain is man made, often putrid or partially dried out and glass shrimp were never there in the first place (the drain runs into the salty part of the swan river) - and another point - the fact the indisticta have not spread further from that drain in that area over the last 30 years shows that they are not as invasive as the document portrays them as... It is typical propaganda by those that do not know the truth behind issues and fail to seek advice from industry to understand circumstances that are beyond their desks.

it shouldn't even be brought up....

 

the more people that believe bullshit like that without the correct back story, and post the link the more the common idiot see's it and believes it...

 

thus the more pressure it puts on the shrimp hobby, without any actual evidence

Does anyone know if the rampage on shrimp is still going? or has it stopped? I have seen a few pictures from groups on FB of tanks being wiped out.

Yes and No. Shrimp was ok for about 3 months (2 month ago), but it is back on the Fisheries agenda. They don't even like native shrimps.

When shrimp were first targeted, the gumtree trade stopped overnight but there seems to be a lot of advertising on gumtree still this time around.

There are individuals in that department that seem to only be interested in targeting particular commercial outlets over an issue that has no merit - the fact they are not showing concern over gumtree and ebay sellers indicates that the perceived issue with ornamental shrimp in WA is more of a vendetta against the commercial sale rather than the perceived risk.....
There is an unpublished internal document that raises a concern over the movement of the genus Penaeus (prawns) - so some individuals in the department have carried that concern to all other crustaceans....
If those individuals are allowed to continue to have their way, then it could continue to products like live corals and living rock from over east - unless one can guarantee without doubt that these items do not contain any crustaceans....
If the vendetta against our industry remains there, then we can find ways to cope - but if left unchecked, there is no limit to what they can choose to regulate.
The PCS should continue to fight for deregulation or at least open dialogue with those within the department that have concerns with our humble industry.
