FishforLife Programme

If you are one of South Africa’s estimated 800 000 recreational fishers or anglers then WWF’s new FishforLife programme wants to hear from you.

The ‘citizen science’ FishforLife programme is inviting members of the recreational fishing community to contribute information about their catches and even the “one that got away” to a database that will be used to study the state of South Africa’s marine life.

And if there are some pictures in the photo album of great catches from back in the 1970s or before, then they want those too as a way of establishing how marine environments have changed.
