Notifiable marine pests


Marine pests are listed as notifiable in NSW because they are either exotic to Australia and if established here could impact severely on the economy, human health or the environment (prohibited matter), or they  may already exist in Australia and there is a control program in place (notifiable matter).

By remaining vigilant and notifying as soon as you suspect a notifiable pest or event, you can play a vital role in protecting aquatic industries and preventing marine pest spread and establishment in the NSW aquatic environment.
