The Aggressive Threat of Gambusia
A vital project was launched on the 11 November 2004 to study of Gambusia holbrooki or mosquito fish.
The Gambusia is 60 millimetres of aggressive threat. Female Gambusias give birth to about 1,000 young each year.

fish species and eat their eggs. They feed on the eggs of threatened
frogs and eat tadpoles.
Upper Tamar River Improvement Authority (UTRIA) works to improve
the river. The State Government has contributed to dredging
the upper reaches because silt affects recreational users,
tourism operators and maritime businesses, as well as contributing
to the flood threat.
