Abstract

Recreational angling has a history of species introductions causing significant loss of native biodiversity. Despite this, it represents a large economy supporting many livelihoods. The Mooi River, South Africa, supports trout fisheries in its upper reach. A weir was constructed to mitigate the loss of a natural barrier, now inundated by a large impoundment.
