Native Fish Species

A list of native fish species indicates whether or not the species is endemic (found only in Tasmania) and/or threatened.

The following list of native fish species indicates whether or not the species is endemic (found only in Tasmania) and/or threatened. Several of the endemic species of galaxiids are confined to highland lakes, namely the golden galaxias (lakes Sorell and Crescent), saddled galaxias, Arthurs paragalaxias (Woods and Arthurs lakes only) and the Great Lake paragalaxias (Great Lake, Shannon and Penstock lagoons). In addition, there are several other species that migrate between fresh and salt water at different stages of their life cycle, and are usually widespread at least in coastal streams.
