Introducing Our Flagship White Steenbras Project

We are excited to announce our new flagship initiative, the White Steenbras Project, dedicated to studying and preserving the White Steenbras in the Knysna Estuary. This project utilizes cutting-edge acoustic telemetry technology to monitor the movements and behaviors of these fascinating fish.

What is the White Steenbras Project?

The White Steenbras Project aims to uncover the mysteries of the White Steenbras, a crucial species in our estuarine ecosystem. By tagging and tracking these fish, we gather invaluable data on their migration patterns, habitat use, and environmental interactions. This research not only enhances our understanding of the White Steenbras but also informs conservation strategies to protect their natural habitat.

Why It Matters

The White Steenbras is a keystone species, playing a vital role in maintaining the health and balance of the estuary. Understanding their behavior and movements helps us identify critical habitats and potential threats, ensuring the long-term sustainability of the ecosystem.

How We Track the Steenbras

Using acoustic telemetry, we tag individual fish with small transmitters that send unique signals to an array of receivers. This technology allows us to monitor the fish in real-time, providing a detailed map of their movements and interactions within the estuary.
