Scale-less dark brown to olive-green fish, eight whiskery barbels around mouth. Can grow up to 25-50 cm long.
To help protect our environment:
Lakes, slow-moving water bodies, streams, drainage channels.
Eats fish and invertebrates. Contributes to poor water quality, exacerbates algal blooms, suspends sediment, uproots plants. Can cause lake to flip to an alternative state devoid of vegetation, with turbid water dominated phytoplankton.
Check equipment and vessels for freshwater pests, clean everything that has been in contact with the water and dry everything thoroughly.
