The Ellen Brook Catchment is a key catchment in the overall health of the Swan-Canning estuarine system. It has been identified as a major source of nutrients entering the estuary, exporting an average of approximately 77 t of nitrogen and 26 t of phosphorus per year. It is these nutrients that contribute to the periodic outbreaks of potentially toxic algal blooms in the Swan and Canning Rivers.
