I stopped at Bontebok national park for a picnic on route between CT and George. I was a bit puzzled by this poster. The left side had a range of exotic fish, bass, carp and blugill for catch and if you like eat, and the other side had the indigenous fish for catch and release and report. Two things I had never seen before is the cape carp that looks like a european cod and the banded bream which looks like a blacktail with a bit of extra colour. Is this genuine as I could not find info on these species anyhwere? I also am baffled that the bream and mullet are quite unlikely to be found so high up the river beyond the rapids? Further, the only thing to come out were a few barble which is indegnous to SA, but invasive to that system and yet not a mention of them on the chart. Should I be concerned that the SANPARKS ichtheologist has dropped the ball a bit here?

So here is a pic of an Atlantic Cod. Looks a lot like the so called "Cape Carp". Is this where our tax money is going?

They maybe heard about Cape Kurper and googled the wrong picture.

Moggel for fresh water mullet?

I've fished/ seen mullet very high up in the Gourits River System, just below Calitzdorp, so they do move high up. But as far as I know its just a mullet and not specific "fresh water" species.

Are you sure its not 1st April being played? Or maybe I just learned something new. I always like to learn something new.

Well at least one of the specifies is true.
Also found references to Banded bream
But for the life of me I cant find anything for "Cape Carp"

You have a better chance hooking a goldfish with a 14’O circle at Mudlark than catching a Banded Bream in the Breede....

Ek sien dit nou, jy is reg dis 'n greyling! Wat 'n sirkus, eerlikwaar, hoe kan 'n mens verwag van inspekteurs om die wet toe te pas, weet hulle wat die verskil is tussen 'n elf en 'n galjoen?

Reading this article seems there might be Tench (Tinca Tinca) in the system. 'Freshwater fishes of Bontebok National Park'

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/47295803_Freshwater_fishes_of_Bontebok_National_Park

Still some wrong pictures on the board there, maybe time to contact someone to fix it?

Maybe its time for Cape Nature/SANPARKS to update their research.

I don't know how they stuffed it up so badly. It looks like they sent the info to the printers, and they lost the file, and being a graphic designer, and not an ichtheologist, they decided to try and wing it, or they pocked the money instead of paying royalties for the correct images and made up their own names from what they could remember and ripped a few images from the internet for free as replacements. Either way, someone needs a kick in the butt for this.

What is odd, is that the left hand side of the board had all the exotic fish listed which was 100% correct, including carp, bluegill, bass, tench etc

And to add insult to injury, the only fish I saw come out were catfish, which is a non-endemic highly invasive species to that river system. This did not feature on either of the charts.

It's just a symptom of the incompetence sifting through at all levels in this country. From SARS IT head down incidents such as this, everywhere people doing jobs they have no capability or desire to do. :X
