Stonefish in Moreton Bay

stonefish ianbanksLocals have reported seeing hundreds of stonefish in Moreton Bay, Tingalpa Creek and Wynnum Creek in recent days. Wynnum Manly fisherman are saying they have never seen that many so close to the shore in our area. Parents should keep a watchful eye for this dangerous creature, beachgoers should wear shoes in shallow bay waters. If a person is stung, they are advised to seek medical treatment immediately.

The stonefish has 13 sharp strong dorsal fin spines that are contained within a sheath of thick skin. At the base of each spine there are two venom glands that discharge their contents along ducts in the spine. When disturbed, the fish erects its spines, but maintains its position on the sea floor.
