Aquarium and Water Gardens

Today, water gardeners and aquarium owners are able to select from a variety of aquatic plants, invertebrates, and fish that can be readily available at local nurseries, pet stores, and aquarium outlets or via mail order or the internet. Exotic species are desired for water gardens and aquariums because of the beauty and variety.

Unfortunately, some of these aquatic exotic species have the potential to become “invasive” due to accidental or intentional release/escape into Ontario waters and can spread into our lakes, rivers and wetlands, having negative impacts on native species and ecosystems.

You can help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species!

Remember to report invasive species!
