FISHTRAC
The South Africa inland fish tracking (FISHTRAC) programme developed uses smart technologies to communicate information across a wireless network between sensors deployed in an aquatic environment and a Data Management System (DMS) accessed via the internet. This is done in real-time and remotely. These sensors (Tags and Probes) can be attached to fish and other semi-aquatic organism or placed strategically in the aquatic ecosystem to measure abiotic factors. The data is collected by remote stations and transferred to the DMS. This allows for any smart electronic devices to obtain the data in real-time. The FISHTRAC programme can measure location, activity, temperature and depth of fishes and evaluated alongside environmental variables measured in the same system. The real-time capabilities of FISHTRAC allows for an early warning to be used in detecting problems as they happen, assisting in the mitigation of pollution events. Further application of the FISHTRAC programme can greatly assist: water resource management, conservation of freshwater ecosystems, setting and establishing environmental flows, monitoring freshwater ecosystems and tracking the movement of indicator fish species.
