ORI: 30 Years of tagging fish

A press release from Stuart Dunlop of ORI (Oceanographic Research Institute) announces 30 years of tagging fish in and southern African waters.

“The Oceanographic Research Institute’s Cooperative Fish Tagging Project (ORI-CFTP) was the brain-child of past ORI Director Rudy van der Elst and was initiated in 1984. After 30 years this project is still going strong and is undoubtedly one of the most enduring and successful environmental projects of its kind in South Africa. This celebration is most significant for this long term project and it is a great opportunity to learn more about its achievements over the past 30 years and its plans for the future.”
