Abstract

Bull Creek is a perennial, urban stream located in the City of Melville and is a tributary to the Canning River. The catchment has been largely altered for urban development (i.e. housing) and receives a considerable amount of storm-water runoff. Substantial effort has been made recently to re-habilitate the riparian zone of Bull Creek through weed eradication (particularly blackberry control) and native re-vegetation programs. The Melville City Council recognised the need to extend this rehabilitation effort to include the instream aquatic fauna and thus a fish re-establishment program was implemented; the details of which are described in this report.
