Abstract

A trapping survey in the wider Ord River catchment and adjacent river systems of the east Kimberley region between August and December 2006, failed to extend the distributional range of redclaw crayfish beyond Lake Kunnurra, where it was first introduced in 1998. These findings suggest an opportunity remains for its control.
