Cabomba caroliniana is an invasive aquatic weed currently
present in Victoria, NSW, Queensland and the NT. Cabomba
reduces biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems by replacing native
aquatic plants, and interferes with human use of water resources
such as drinking water production, irrigation and recreational
activities. Control of cabomba is difficult once established,
therefore prevention of further spread is paramount.
