About this event

The Gold Coast Tilapia Busters Event is the biggest Pest Fish event in Southeast Queensland. Run by both My Catch Australia and Gold Coast Fishing Fanatics, the event was launched originally in 2015.

The event is a free community event designed to raise community awareness of Tilapia’s devastating effect on the environment. The day aims to remove Tilapia and other introduced fish (Goldfish, Koi and European carp) from the lakes while raising awareness of further issues affecting water quality.

Mozambique Tilapia (Mozambique mouth-brooder) is an introduced fish that competes with our native species, damages aquatic plants and increases water turbidity (cloudiness). The event is family friendly! Parents bring your kids! Kids bring your parents for a fun filled morning of fishing.

At the event we will have - Fishing Industry and Pest Displays organised Bio Security and City of Gold Coast and a Bait Store - selling worms and tackle for the day. The overall competition will have the below prize divisions:

Adults (Age-18+)Men’s and Women’s

Young Adults (Age 10 - 17)Men’s and Women’s

Juniors (Age 5 - 9)Boys and Girls

Length Divisions: Longest Bass, Longest Tilapia, Silly Tilly(smallest) and Various raffle draws will also be drawn at the end of the presentation.

Maps and further information will be announced and displayed on our Facebook pages events page

Organiser My Catch Australia

Organiser of Gold Coast Tilapia Busters

My Catch Australia started life as a small Facebook page with only a handful of followers. It was a place where close mates could come and brag about their catches and talk about their fishing adventures. This quickly changed as our content was shared around the fishing community and we saw our followers grow and grow across both Instagram and Facebook.

Today My Catch Australia has a combined social media audience of over 10,000 people primarily located around Australia that share a passion for all things fishing. We are a team of 4 mates that enjoy all different types of fishing, from Saltwater to Freshwater and Evasive Species Control.  With help from our page sponsors, My Catch Australia has been lucky enough to test, advertise and market some fantastic products that have helped us catch fish in all different types of environments. On top of this our sponsors have allowed us to run some fantastic fishing competitions locally around the Gold Coast and Brisbane contributing to price pools worth up to $3000 of prizes.
