Marine Club

Marine Club

The Marina’s first ever Marine Club has been launched. See the pics above. The Board Member for the Environment, Dr Christel Coetzee, says that homeowners and residents are being invited to participate in monthly activities such as catch and release of fish, updating data on marine life and gathering water samples to test temperature and quality. The Club will also organise outings to document plant and animal species. Project Owner, Shaun Cavanagh, says the idea is to boost the overall understanding of the Marina’s eco systems through education, studying and collecting of data in nature. The Club has starting building fish habitats from recycled buckets and pipes that will assist in the breeding and protection of smaller fish in the Marina. These habitats will double as a new snorkelling route that will be accessible to both young and old. Weekly photos and videos will be taken of these habitats to gauge how successful they are in attracting more fish. These pictures will be shared on the Marina website so be sure to keep checking for updates. If any Members do have any old paint buckets of plastic piping laying around please get in contact with Shaun Cavanagh on 073 908 2559 or if you would like to know more about joining and being involved in this exciting initiative.
