The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER) is investigating a fish kill on the Lower Collie River between the Danjoo Koorliny bridge (Eaton Drive) where it intersects with the Brunswick River, in Australind.
Approximately 400 black bream and a small number of mulloway have been impacted.
DWER scientists have identified a potentially harmful algal bloom, which may be affecting fish health directly.
In the meantime, the public is urged to stay safe by following the general Department of Health fish kill advice:
DWER will continue to maintain a watching brief and is encouraging the public to use the FishWatch Hotline 1800 815 507 to report further fish kills.
