Breeding Season for Israel's Native Amnon Fish


Fishing in a northern portion of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) will be banned for 60 days due to fish breeding season. The amnon fish, also known as the tilapia, or StPeter's fish is native to the region and will come ashore to lay their eggs, stated officials from the Department of Agriculture. The temporary ban hopes to maintain the balance of the ecosystem in Galilee, they added.
