We are currently upgrading the National Introduced Marine Pest Information System. The system will:
- be easier to search
- have improved mapping functions.
NIMPIS will not be available while we are making these improvements.
We aim to launch the new version of NIMPIS in August 2019.
We maintain a scientific database of marine pests that:
- could be introduced in the future
- are already in Australian waters
- are native to some locations but a pest in others.
Data we collect
NIMPIS contains data for over 100 marine pests, includes information on:
- how they survive
- reproduction and growth
- feeding, competitors and predators
- entry pathways
- known locations
- control options.
Use the data
Anyone can use NIMPIS to:
- help identify marine pests in their areas
- help prevent the introduction and spread of marine pests
- view known locations of marine pests.
Biosecurity managers can use NIMPIS to:
- develop emergency response plans
- share marine pest surveillance data in their areas.
Share new data
Our database contains over:
- 100 marine pests
- 600 images
- 4000 references.
We encourage you to share any new information on marine pests.
