New heights were reached by the people involved in the Saving Sandfish fish rescue this year! After witnessing a very successful sandfish spawning migration, scientists and conservationists returned to the Biedouw valley for a fish rescue at the end of October. Thousands of baby sandfish were carefully netted and stocked into the Enjo Nature Farm dam, the Mertenhof Farm dam and a dam in the Bushmanskloof private game reserve.
In Dr. Jeremy Shelton’s words: “Over 4000 young sandfish were rescued and relocated to the dams at Enjo, Martenhof and Bushmans Kloof – to my knowledge the largest ever freshwater fish rescue in Africa!”
