Breede river redfin

Breede river redfin

The Breede River redfin lives only in the streams of the Cape Fold mountains.

They are thought to be relics of an ancient lineage of fish, which survived climate and other changes by retreating into cold mountain streams.

Most minnow species are threatened, the redfin is listed as critically endangered.

Large alien fish such as bass like to eat these small fish.
