Algal blooms impacting the Swan and Canning rivers

Algal blooms in the Swan Canning Riverpark have reduced over the past week, however conditions continue to be favourable for algal activity.

Elevated Karenia-type dinoflagellate in Melville Water presents a potential health risk to anyone consuming shellfish from the area. Department of Health advise the public not to eat wild shellfish from the Swan Canning Riverpark or other uncontrolled waters.
