Moore River - Regans Ford
Basin : Moore-Hill rivers
Catchment : Moore River
The condition of the Moore River - Regans Ford site (site code: MR81MOOR1) in the middle catchment of the Moore River, was assessed between 25 and 26 February 2019, over a 100-m length of stream. The site was previously assessed between 23 and 24 October 2008 under site code: MR-18.
The assessment was conducted using standard methods from the South West Index of River Condition. Measures chosen for this assessment included fish and crayfish, aquatic habitat, water quality (dissolved oxygen and temperature logged over 24h, and electrical conductivity, pH, colour, alkalinity, turbidity and nutrients), fringing vegetation, channel morphology, erosion, connectivity, local land use and flow.
An online condition summary for the 2019 assessment has not been prepared. Please contact the Departments River Science team for site information, and see below for links to information on some of the species found at the site, and some images taken in February 2019
In 2008 the site was assessed as part of a national assessment of river condition – view report here.
Fish and crayfish
Seven fish, including one exotic species were found in February 2019. No crayfish species were found.
In October 2008, six fish and two crayfish species were found at this site, with no exotics. The species found were blue-spot goby, freshwater cobbler, nightfish, south-western goby, western pygmy perch and western hardyhead, gilgie and smooth marron.
