Abstract

In order to enhance the migrations of fish species in the Margaret River the Margaret River Regional Environment Centre, in conjunction with the Water and Rivers Commission, constructed a fishway at the town weir in March and April 2003. The only data previously existing with regard to the fishes of the Margaret River is that by Morgan et al. (1998) and a few records in the Western Australian Museum. To ascertain the current suite of species in the river and the extent to which they occur throughout the river a number of sites were sampled in March 2003. Furthermore, to determine the extent to which the two weirs on the river impede the upstream migration of lampreys, the densities of larval lampreys (and thus recruitment success) were assessed throughout the river, i.e. both upstream and downstream of the weirs.
