Overview

What do goldfish, the aquatic plant hydrilla, mystery snails, and Oriental weatherfish all have in common? They are living in the wild as non-native species within the Pacific Region! How did they get here? All of these species were originally pets living in aquariums. This is a big problem for many reasons. Released aquarium species can become invasive, taking over natural habitats and competing with native species for resources. So, whether you're a teacher, a pet storeowner, or an aquarium enthusiast, be thinking about how you can prevent invasive species introductions and help us spread the word about National Invasive Species Awareness Week!
