Alien Fish Culling at Subang Jaya Lake by PeMM

ลองอ่านดูเล่นๆน่ะครับ.

For years now, the Subang Jaya lakes has been turned into a "fish dumping ground" for unwanted aquarium species which included the Peacock Bass, Jaguar Cichlid, Flower Horn, Red Emperor, Ikan Bandaraya and a host of other species.

These alien species were either the results of failed aquarium investments or were deliberately introduced in the hope of it becoming a freshwater gamefish for Malaysian anglers.

These alien species reproduced in dynamic proportions to colonise the waters, depleting it of the smaller and more domicile local species. Alien species like the Peacock Bass and Jaguar Cichlids are at the top of the food chain since the only other natural predator there is the Haruan which posed no threat whatsoever due to its small population.

The alien species are now found in other parts of Peninsular Malaysia due to natural flooding or intentional translocation. A very good example of this is the Peacock Bass; which is found in abundance in most body of water in the Klang and Kinta valley.

PeMM's SOS (Save Our Species) campaign was launched when we discovered that the alien species were indeed sending our local species into extinction. The aggressive and dominant nature of the Peacock Bass and the Jaguar Cichlid simply wiped out the few generations of local species in the waters.

PeMM has always advocated the culling or removal of the alien species. In the SOS campaign, we seek to educate the public on the dangers posed by the alien species through angling competitions; to remove alien species from the local lakes and ponds.

One such competition was the Laman Jaya Alien Fish Competition in April, 2005. In collaboration with MPPJ, we managed to harvest approximately 130 kilograms of alien species like the Jaguar Cichlid, Tilapia, Ikan Bandaraya, Flower Horn, Red Emperor, Keli Afrika, etc.

The SOS campaign is of utmost priority and is an on-going fight for PeMM. With this in mind, a culling exercise was organised at the Subang Jaya lake on 11 September, 2005. As with all PeMM activities, this was also to be a fun get together with nasi lemak, teh tarik and sardine toasts.

A group of anglers with their families in tow, set out for a day of fun in the sun as well as for the purpose of culling the alien species. The children who had been briefed on the destructive nature of the alien species had fun hauling up the Peacock bass and Jaguar Cichlids.

Artificial lures and bottom fishing with live baitfish were employed. In the mere 3 hours, there was an assortment of juvenile Jaguar Cichlids and Peacock Bass.

The adults were too smart to go for the baits offered but one did fall for the Yozuri lure of Mohd. Rohaizad (aka Rohu Slayer). A good specimen of approximately 13 inches was hauled up from the far end of the lake.

By 11.30am, the action died down and we decided to call it a day. We parted ways in agreement that we would be back continually to keep the alien fish population in check.

We know that we cannot completely eradicate the alien species from our waters as long as the Government is not involved in the control of exotic species and its traffic. Periodically, there is a new variety of exotic species imported into the country; many of which would be dumped into the lakes and ponds. Exotic fishes that have fallen out of grace with their owners.

In the meantime, PeMM would do its best in shifting the balance in favour of the local species through education and systematic culling. It would take everyone's commitment and perseverance to keep the alien species under control.

Insignificant as our efforts may be, we do it for the sake of the future generations. We do not wish to be introducing a local fish species to our decesdents through a reference book but rather through first hand experience; something I am afraid would be exactly what we would be doing if the alien fishes are allowed to propagate further in our waters.
