In the press – “Namibia takes pride in freshwater fisheries resources” by Francois Jacobs

Our team member and PhD. student Francois Jacobs (and representative of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources of Namibia) is involved in one of the largest freshwater fish-tagging programmes in southern Africa.

This tagging programme is a long-term marking and recapture study for target species such as the African tigerfish, Hydrocynus vittatus, Threespot bream, Oreochromis andersonii and Nembwe, Serranochromis robustus. An article aimed at raising public awareness has been published in “Stywe Lyne/Tight Lines” (August 2016).

What if you find a tagged fish !? Please refer to the article, here.
