What: Snapper Guardian Pink Snapper Party – come and help us release thousands of your juvenile Pink Snapper
Where: Jervoise Bay, Woodman Point (see map attached)
When: Saturday 6 February 10am – 12pm
The contribution from the WA public to help fund and grow Pink Snapper fingerlings has been astounding. To date the Snapper Guardian Project has raised more than $33,000 and we cannot thank the people who donated enough.
We now have a date and time for our ‘Pink Snapper Party’ where, with the help of the WA community, will be releasing thousands of juvenile Pink Snapper. We will require people to come down and lend a hand transporting fish into the water and help build the Pink Snapper Stocks in Cockburn Sound. The survival of these fish are priority and we will not be releasing fish into water that will impact the survival of these fish.
The Department of Fisheries have made available their boats over the coming weeks to release the rest of the Snapper onto nursery grounds outside of Cockburn Sound – predominantly limestone reefs and sea grasses which are well known nursery habitats for juvenile fish.
Snapper Guardian merchandise is currently under development and will be available to all Snapper Guardians either to be picked up on the release day or sent out to your nominated postage address.
The new fish stocking and transport trailer will be on hand to deliver the fish to the release location.
