BEST WISHES TO ALL TENANTS IN THE PARK FOR A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SUCCESSFUL 2019
CAPRICORN FISH DIE OFF
By Andrea von Gunten, Site Manager for Muizenberg East Conservation Cluster
On the 2nd and 3rd of January we experienced a fish die off at the Capricorn Business Park lake.
The cause of the die off is the result of a blue-green algae (Cylindropermopsis sp) that was confirmed in the lab at the time. The algae occur naturally and pose no threat to humans if not ingested.
As usual at this site, nobody should drink or be in full contact with this water.
While the exact triggers that caused the die off event are unknown at this stage, the build-up of nutrients over a number of years will certainly be a contributing factor. Algal blooms cause a depletion of oxygen in the water, resulting in the fish die off.
Four tonnes of fish were collected in a job that took 154.5 hours.
As a result of the fish die off, our team was able to identify a new species for the Muizenberg East Biodiversity Cluster – a Mozambican longfin eel (pic: top right).
