    shot alot, im assuming freshwater mysis is just as good, in that case i can visit my local stream the Umhaltuzana river, used to catch plent as a lighty.

    Netting in the canal might get me locked up lol.

    Nope, never crossed my mind, please enlighten me as to what permits I need to net shrimp in the stream. I do have a general bait licence for inverts though just, which covers the general inverts but not to sure.

    really!!! we talking a hand net here not a huge fence net.

    secondly weather a permit is necessary or not in the canal, i have authorisation from the ocean research intitute to collect mysis when needed there...not that i have done so before neither does the property even belong to them....but i do help and sponser the cultivation dept when needed and know that they collect there aswell

    the other stream off inanda , i have collected there for years, even had a coke with the one parks officia there and have not been asked for any permit...
    i know pet shops with no permits that have collected there for years too.

    and i think you pretty lucky to get those answers out of me as your questioning did not really warrant an anwser.

    the thread title, was a question, i gave an awnser

    if hammerhead would like to go collect there, im sure he can make his own informed decision as to wether to obtain a permit...if needed , or just scoop a few hand fulls to keep him going for a long while

    i kep sea horses for years and probaly collected from a stream in inanda 4 to 5 times...maybe a net full each time....
    you can keep em going in a little fresh water system very easily

    Yep, if you want to net at the canal at Ushaka you will have to obtain a permit from the Area manager or else you could face prosecution .

    Permits for Mysis collection are available at the DPWMA offices in Rockpoint house. Speak to Elaine at reception. Once you have filled out the application it is submitted to the biologists at uShaka for perusal, and permits are awarded on basis of necessity, ie: what type of fish etc you have in your tank etc...

    Thanks for posting the form...this could be really useful for my new tank. Shrimpfish, pipes and mandarins.

    PS. Does anyone know who I can contact at ORI/uShaka for a fish identification? I've got a clingfish which is either a new record or a new species.
