    Keyhole Lagoons  - Stradbroke island

    I went to a mates place (he lives on stradbroke island) on the weekend and we went canoeing in the keyhole lagoons. These lagoons not only contain gambusia but crayfish and i think i even saw some rainbowfish ( i think just melenatenia dubulayi) They seem a perfect for stocking. how can brisbanes fishing commmunity go about getting these lagoons stocked?

    Does every available piece of water really need stocking? Remember that the majority of fish stocked are high predatory (one reason that they are good lure-taking sportfish) and can have a high impact on the more numerous small species inhabiting natural waters. Species such as pygmy perch which inhabit some of those lacks are on the endangered list already.

    may be way off here but i think those are fully protected parks.

    The fish you saw were probably Rhadinocentrus ornatus, which tend to be alot more common in those areas than Melanotaenia duboulayi.

    I didnt think that freshwater natural lakes were to be stocked only man made lakes and dams and flowing river systems........

    Got Buckleys of getting DPI&F to support any stocking within these lakes.
    They are natural, unaltered waters & should be left as is. The stocking of native fish in Qld is only done as:
    A- a last resort to save a species (ie Mary River cod)
    B- When man made barriers to fish migration are in place (ie wiers & dams)
