Yabby dabba don't - Invasive mainland yabbies must go

Yabby.jpg

Lake Lynch, in the state's Central Highlands, has been invaded by an abundance of illegally introduced mainland yabbies (not politicians).

John Diggle, Director of Inland Fisheries, explains to Brian Carlton how they intend to eradicate the small population of crustaceans from the lake.

"We're pretty sure that people have bought them down into Tassie, and stocked them illegally so they can catch them and eat them," Mr. Diggle says.
