Laws On shrimp keeping in western australia

Recommended Posts

lamby92

Ok so their always been a big fuss on keeping shrimp here in wa. So I thought I would call fisheries and find out what the go is for shrimp keeping here. So from what they said their are no black and white written laws when it comes to the laws of the importation of none native species. And any shrimp that are already here are aloud as they are native now.

Breeding of Shrimp is aloud once again natives only. So dont be scared off keep breeding them theirs no law against having ornamental shrimp or breeding of shrimp. As for the raids that where done here for shrimp where because the person/people had imported a none native specie from out side of Australia and then was breeding and selling them.

So enjoy keeping shrimp in wa keep to natives aslong as their called (native) your safe. I really hope this has cleared thing up a bit if you would like to find out any other info call fisheries they where great to talk to about it here's the number

The only native shrimp I am aware of in wa are chameleons and glass. All cherries, crs, cbs etc are not classed as native. When they say what's here is in terms of what's in our water ways.

We'll I tried to push them for an answer for that and they told me to call back and they will find out. All in all sounds to me that they don't even know what species are native here.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
