Just received a letter from Fisheries some of which is shown below.
Unfortunately its incidents like these that are going to make it even harder to get access to other species of fish in the future.

Yeah thats the most likely scenario, gone over a dam wall somewhere and then come down the Avon and into the Swan.

Thats the problem Rupe apart from Tandanus Bostoki (a smaller relative of Tandanus tandanus) the only native fish in SW WA are tiny minnows and pygmy perch.

Good luck to them, they don't realise how good they had it before escaping into that cestpool. I took my two year old down to Matilda Bay for a swim last week and it was disgusting with algae washing up on the brown sand and dead/dying blowies floating everywere... back to Hillarys with the lil man

We went down to the river on xmas day, sure enough dead fish floating up guildford way.
