Team rescues fish from dry dam

10 Mar,2016Profiles, Working on Fire

The Dewetsdorp Team in the Free State rescued fish that were on the verge of dying in the Jimmy Roos Dam as a result of lowering water levels in the dam.

Hundreds of fish in the dam had already died and a few were still alive but with the extremely high temperatures their future was dark. The team under the leadership of the Base Manager, Ntate Salvage Breytenbach, collected those that were still alive and took them to another dam that still had enough water for them to survive.

Ntate Breytenbach said that they rescued between 150-170 fish for breeding purposes.

“We rescued them because they were dying and the water was drying up in the dam. We saved as much as we could.”
