Uncovering the secrets of migratory fish

We are working on a report and database to provide a clearer understanding of the migratory fish behaviour and their routes in Southern Africa. This information is critical if we are to strengthen measures to protect migratory fish, inspire people and encourage appropriate policy and legislation.

The results from the review have already shown that approximately 130 fish species have migration tendencies in the region. Of these about 83% are considered severely data deficient.
