A large scale survey was conducted in 1968 and 1969 over the inland area of the southwest of Western Australia to establish the degree of success of introductions of marron, Cherax tenuimanus (Smith), in small, private, turbid farm dams. The results of this investigation stimulated further research, described in this paper, on marron in this type of water.
