About WRM

The WRM office is located close to the Perth CBD, in the riverside suburb of Burswood, and includes office space as well as a fully functional laboratory where macroinvertebrate samples are processed and specimens identified.

The laboratory contains the latest Leica high performance stereo microscopes as well as two Leica DFC425 compound microscopes, with digital camera and vertical LED illumination systems, allowing high resolution photography of specimens at both low and high magnification. WRM also possess all necessary equipment for sampling aquatic systems, including Smith-Root Model LR-24 electrofisher, boat, and a range of different fyke, gill, seine, plankton and dip nets, various box traps and state of the art pod-trapping equipment for the effective removal of pest fish species in wetlands.

The team at WRM has over 80 years of combined experience in aquatic monitoring, and we currently have projects running in the Pilbara, Kimberley and South-West and Perth-metro regions of Western Australia, as well as in Papua New Guinea.
