If you suspect you have seen a marine pest, you should report it to the Customer Service Centre on 136 186. If possible, remove the pest and preserve it in a container of salt water or freeze it. The Customer Service Centre will provide instructions on what to do with the specimen. If collecting a specimen is not possible, a clear photograph can also be useful for identification. Make sure you record the location of where it was found. Many pests look very similar to our native plants and animals - therefore it is important not to remove any suspected pests in large numbers.
