IN DEPTH:

IS PHAKISA A LIFELINE:  Launched last year, Operation Phakisa aims to open up the ocean economy and has, as one of its focuses, the marine manufacturing sector.  Will the "non negotiable" time lines for infrastructure delivery meet the needs of the industry?


COLUMNS: 

FISHY BUSINESS:  Shaheen Moolla weighs in on the latest developments in the rights allocation process that will see exemptions rolled out over a number of fisheries.

THROUGH THE LENS: Claire Attwood discusses November's Gauteng High Court ruling that set aside a moratorium on the catching of red steenbras that had been declared in 2012.  

CASTING THE NET BACK:  Dave Japp and Claire Attwood collaborate to compare ideas and understanding of fisheries management from 100 years ago with contemporary knowledge.  The series of articles is based on an almost complete set of Marine Biological Reports dating back to 1904 authored by South Africa's first marine biologist, John Gilchrist and others, and purchased by Japp at an auction recently.

MARITIME MEMORIES:  Brian Ingpen follows the rise and fall of a Dutch shipping line synonymous with trade into and out of South Africa.

KEELHAULED:
   The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) kicks off our keelhauling list for 2015 given the latest developments in the FRAP farce. At the same time we also keelhaul Eskom for very obvious reasons

APPLAUD:
 
We applaud Fugro South Africa for their decision to invest in a new-build for the Afrcan coast - adding capacity in Africa. The Fugro Frontier will have additional space for training initiatives in the hydrographic sector.
