 Reminder: Swan River Alert

The Department of Health is reminding people over the Easter break and school holidays not to eat fish, crabs or shellfish collected from the Swan River downstream from Pelican Point to Como Jetty and upstream to Maali Bridge Park, Herne Hill.

Ongoing monitoring of the Swan River shows elevated levels of the potentially toxic microscopic algae ‘Alexandrium minutum’ still persist from Pelican Point to Como Jetty and upstream to Herne Hill.

This area includes the commonly known areas of Matilda Bay, Como Jetty, Perth Waters, Elizabeth Quay, Barrack Street Jetty, Claisebrook Cove, Ascot Waters, Riverside Gardens, Garvey Park, Sandy Beach Reserve, Point Reserve, Fish Market Reserve, Woodbridge Riverside Park and Middle Swan Reserve.

This covers all parts of the river located in the City of Belmont.

For all enquiries see the Department of Health website and their Frequently Asked Questions.
