Discussions regarding illegal trade in illegal items


Recommended Posts

I am not, and do not purport to be, an expert in the allowable import list. Nor do I purport to know the minutiae of various state-based legislation regarding legal and illegal fish and plants.

However, to the extent that I do know something is in fact noxious or not a legal import, I'm not willing to allow AAQ to be used for the sale/exchange/trade or attempted (illegal) importation of such items. Such posts will be locked with a public explanation, and they may also deleted at the moderators' discretion.

I would appreciate everyone's co-operation on this.

Thanks guys.

Some websites about the legalities of our fish.... Just because you didn't know the Koi Carp in your tank wasn't really a goldfish isn't an excuse - fines can be in excess of $150,000 - so please don't offer or ask for illegal/restricted/pest/noxious fish on the forum to save Lisa and yourself a lot of issues (and believe it - AQIS do look at ebay, forums etc to keep an eye on what's going on around the place - I know this from personally talking to an AQIS officer).

ICON Database - great reference tool for anyone importing anything into Australia.
