IN DEPTH:

AQUACULTURE:  South Africa's aquaculture industry, which has long existed in the shadow of a diverse and internationally competitive fishing industry, is coming into its own and proving its worth as a valuable contributor to local economies and a significant creator of quality jobs.  Claire Attwood takes a closer look.


COLUMNS: 

FISHY BUSINESS:  Only days before the May 7 General Elections, the Fisheries Minister announced that the 2013 FRAP was an illegal and indefensible farce and that she would have to "set the process aside"and essentially start again.

MARITIME MEMORIES:  This issue we celebrate the 50-year milestone of Hans Petring who has been working in the Cape Town harbour for half a century.
