Article: Something fishy going on and measures have to be taken

Monday July 13, 2009

THE RM10,000 reward for catching the Araipaima gigas (or Dragon fish) in Tasik Kenyir to reduce its population, offered by the Terengganu mentri besar, underscores the gravity of the issue where invasion of foreign species is concerned.

Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) is concerned that alien fish species are dumped into our waterways, threatening the lives of indigenous fish species and our native fauna. Some of these are imported as pets and then abandoned when the novelty of owning luohans, peacock bass and cichilids wears of.

Factors like environmental pollution and destruction of natural habitats and ecosystems have made it easier for non-native species to destroy our environment as many are "colonising" species that benefit from radically reduced competition.

Global climate change is another contributing factor.

The problem can snowball if the Government does not take more active and effective measures to deal with this.

The Tasik Kenyir problem is just a wake-up call for the authorities to beef up the legislation and monitoring of all pet shops.


SAM president, Penang.
