Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) distribution in Australia
The Mozambique tilapia is a species of deep-bodied fish belonging to the family Cichlidae. The ecological impacts of introduced Mozambique tilapia have been studied extensively in many parts of the world. It can out-compete native fish and invertebrates due to its aggressive behaviour and wide ecological tolerances. It is also capable of causing habitat degradation through nest-building activities, and transferring pathogens and parasites to native fish. In Australia, more research is needed to fully understand its economic, social and ecological effects. However, habitat modification, spreading disease and biodiversity reduction are some of the likely impacts.
