IN DEPTH:

IUU FISHING: The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), NEPAD's Stop Illegal Fishing programme, together with the Department of Environmental Affairs and the Australian Fisheries Management Authority, recently convened a four-day work-shop in Cape Town to discuss issues arising from illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing (IUU).

REPORT BACK:

SAMIC 2012: If anyone ever doubted the passion of the South African maritime industry, they need only have dropped in to the South African Maritime Industry Conference (SAMIC) during July to better understand that the companies and individuals working in the various sectors are committed to the developing, promoting and investing in these sectors.

BREAKBULK AFRICA: Having been hosted in Europe, Breakbulk Africa moved to the continent this year as Cape Town welcomed delegates from various regions to this forum for the first time.

KEELHAULED:
Ruth Bengu single-handedly rewrote our maritime history when she proclaimed,in her keynote address at SAMIC that South Africa had sold its fleet of 57 vessels in 1993.While its clear that she has been mis-informed by her speech writers, one would hope that people in her position would do just a small amount of fact checking. 


APPLAUD:

While Ms Bengu certainly deserved the keelhaul above, she does score some Noddy points for publicly committing to unblock legislation.She told the SAMIC conference that her's was the correct door to knock on in this regard.
