Lowveld river connectivity and fish migration awarness event

The Crocodile River is one of the last free flowing rivers in the lowveld region of South Africa and Mozambique. Although the Crocodile River is heavily utilised it still contains a good representation of migratory fishes including our regional endemic catadromous migrating eel Anguilla mossambica. On the 16th of May 2020 the University of Mpumalanga in collaboration with the South African National Biodiversity Institute will be hosting a river connectivity and fish migration awareness event at the Lowveld Botanical Gardens in Nelspruit from 09h00 to 16h00. The event will take place on the Crocodile River and include fish monitoring demonstrations, Live eels, river connectivity management facilities and management and conservation opportunities. Come young and old! Join us and help us keep our rivers full of fish!
