Abstract

Rivers, streams and wetlands of southwestern Australia support populations of fish found nowhere else in the world. Many of these species are threatened and populations are declining in both abundance and distribution. In order to help understand the drivers of these declines and devise management actions to halt them, this collaborative project aimed to fill key knowledge gaps relating to the ecology of three of south-western Australia’s most threatened freshwater fishes, the Western Trout Minnow, Balston’s Pygmy Perch and the Little Pygmy Perch, one of Australia’s ‘newest’ fishes.
