Does anyone know where I can get hold of Galvanized Timed Releases (GTRs) -- apparently also know as "pop-ups" -- in South Africa.

It's not for fishing use, but rather for a Turtle conservation project. We plan to send a GoPro down for a period of time, but need to return it to the surface after X hours. I thought galvanised time release could work well for this application.

There are a few people selling GTRs abroad:

http://www.underseareleases.com/info.htm
http://www.lfsmarineoutdoor.com/time-releases-galvanized-1-7-day.html
http://oceanappliances.com.au/

But I can't seem to find anyone selling them in SA...

Perhaps commercial fishing outfits would have?

Any suggestions?

Thanks - Andre

Hi Andre,dont know if you've spoken to the guys from ORI?If im not mistaken they have helped out with a few projects in mosselbay regarding white sharks and pop ups.i reckon that will be your best bet,unless they can maybe point you in the right direction.
