KAMP TANIMI :
GEN-05 MIRACLE FISH ERCIS - VAN 22.05 – 02.06 FEST-ENVI-ART 10 VOLS
Are you ready to see a miracle of Pearl Mullet which is an endemic fish species living only in Lake Van in the east part of Turkey. Although they live in the lake, the fishes are laying eggs in the rivers running towards the lake. Migration for egg laying is a spectacular scene. You will see thousands of fishes jumping into the air against the strong current of the river. http://www.vidivodo.com/video/inci-kefali-gocu/916164 The illegal egg laying time fishing is endangering the life of the fish and pushing towards extinction.
The local Nature Observers Association is putting a lot of effort to protect the fish and to prevent the illegal & out of season fishing. A festival is organized to raise awareness in the region by Ercis town governor, Ercis Municipality, 100. Yil University and Nature Observers Association.
