    Stop The Ban On Koi In Australia

    Hello fellow koi friends

    Some of you would know by now that the Australian Government is considering a nation-wide ban on koi in Australia. I am hoping that all of you might help just a little to prevent this from happening. I hope you will be able to write a letter or send an email to those who are pushing this proposal forward

    Link to the government proposal
    http://www.daff.gov.au/ornamental

    Discusion on the Australian Koi Forum
    http://ksakoi.com/bb/index.php?board=29.0

    The most important person to send your email and letters to is:

    Mr Richard Tilzey
    Ornamental Fish Working Group
    Bureau of Rural Sciences
    GPO Box 858
    Canberra ACT 2601

    Email: [email protected]

    If you want to use this sample letter below to get you started, please do

    Dear .............

    "I am writing to you to lend my support to my fellow koi keepers in Australia. I have become aware that your government is considering banning the keeping of koi in all of Australia. I think this would be a major disappointment. Australian koi keepers are amongst some of the best in the world. They are both dedicated to responsible koi ownership and maintaining the Australian way of life. I urge you to allow the keeping of koi in Australia, in those states where it is currently legal. It would be a major loss to Australia and to the international community if there was a total ban on keeping koi in all of Australia.

    Yours Sincerely

    you guys spring for the airfare - I'll convert the ignorant b*****ds.

    Seriously, that is very disturbing news. Thank you for the information. I had read the government report that was linked on another thread awhile back with alarm. Thanks for letting us know how to help voice some intelligent opposition on your behalf.

    Shoot, tell him if you have koi, you can get lots and lots of girlfriends - chicks dig fish geeks. They'll even come over and backwash his filter. (that sounds funny for some reason )

    One question: isn't the import of koi already banned in Australia? want to have my facts correct before writing so someone verify yes or no.

    In this case, need your fellow Dale to give him a call too....

    Where is Dale anyway? Haven't seen him post lately.

    IS the gov. worried they will escape into the waterways and cause more problems with invasives? Carp are good at fighting with native species.
