Imagine for a moment that going to heaven for a fish might have something to do with that strange sunlit world above?
Twenty years ago, ‘up there’, would have been teaming with amateur fishers angling for a piece of undersea action. From the fishes perspective the last place they might wish to go.
For years now Rapid Bay jetty has been slowing collapsing into the ocean. No one sets foot on its structure anymore. Sections of the Jetty are completely gone and no more fishing lines descend from above.
Where once were fishers there are now gulls and cormorants and of course fresh air.
For the fishes heaven will never be ‘up there’, only death.
