Mozambique tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus, was thought to have been introduced illegally into Australian waterways during the 1970s. Since then the species has spread, with established populations now present in many water bodies in
Queensland and Western Australia. It is continuing to expand its range and is likely to present a significant pest problem.
