CLUB NOTICES

MBSC MANAGEMENT

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) advises that elevated levels of algae have been detected in the Swan and Canning rivers. The algae can provide reddish-brown water discolouration and could influence fish kills upstream of Maylands to Middle Swan in the Swan River. Elevated algae levels have also been detected in the Canning River from Shelley Bridge to Kent Street Weir. This algae can produce toxins that can impact fish by damaging their gills and in severe cases, may cause fish deaths. Blooms of this algae can also make river water appear a reddish-brown colour.

The long weekend weather forecast of hot weather and light winds could assist these algal blooms to grow. DBCA officers are continuing to monitor the blooms and will keep our key Riverpark stakeholders updated.

Information from members of the public is welcome. Anyone who sees dead or sluggish fish in the Swan and Canning rivers are asked to report this to FishWatch on 1800 815 507 and avoid swimming in that area. The public is also advised to not collect dead fish and to prevent their dogs from consuming dead animals that may appear along the river foreshore

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PEN & MOORING HOLDERS & ALL MEMBERS
 
 

Do not access or moor your vessel on the “T” section
at the end of the pen jetty.

 
IT IS IN IMMINENT DANGER OF COLLAPSING
 
Recent pen inspections have uncovered further evidence of deterioration of the steel head stocks supporting this jetty section. It is now at a stage of becoming extremely dangerous to use this jetty.
Negotiations and quotes to repair/replace the section have been sought over the last two years, however, the Club should have an acceptable quote by the end of March with work commencing soon after. The Pen committee will also attempt some remedial work to stabilise the problem.

Meanwhile, we ask all Club members and Pen Holders to respect our request to not enter the area shown on the plan below as you will enter at your own risk.

Warning signs and safety tape will be placed around the area in the next few days.
