This study investigates the distribution of freshwater fishes in the Busselton to Walpole Region. A total of 311 sites in 19 major catchments along the south-west coast from Capel to Walpole, were sampled using a variety of methods. New data was collated with that from previous studies to generate 15 species distribution maps. Habitat and life history notes and recommendations for conservation are made for each species. Changes in fish distribution are also commented upon.

This study contributes to series of documents published for the purposes of water allocation planning in the Busselton to Walpole Region.
