Farewell to a very special person who over his lifetime did so much to promote sportfishing and the ideals of ANSA throughout S.A.

You will be much missed. "John Burges and the ANSA National Executive,  Alan Hall and the ANSA S.A. executive."

Marcel was a driving force and co-ordinator behind SAFTAG, and for many years run it meticulously, driven by his passion for fishing. 

Data collected and recorded by Marcel over the years is irreplaceable and will serve well into the future towards a better understanding of fish growth and migration.
