IN DEPTH:

ADDRESSING FISHERY ISSUES:  Members of the fishing industry, represented largely by a number of associations and organisations, came together at the beginning of May in an effort to unite thinking and strategy for the fishing sectors in South Africa.  The inaugural Fish SA conference highlighted a number of current themes dominating the sector including transformation, small scale fisheries, the rights allocation process, Operation Phakisa and aquaculture.


COLUMNS: 

THROUGH THE LENS:  A new paper has exposed the extent of corruption within the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.  Claire Attwood provides a wide angle perspective.

FISHY BUSINESS: Shaheen Moolla delves once more into the challenges ahead for the FRAP 2015/2016 process. Now officially tasked with assisting the Department of Agriculture, Forestry anf Fisheries, he weighs in on what the coming months will hold and how he sees his role in this.  

CASTING THE NET BACK:  Claire Attwood and Dave Japp consider the fluctuations of fish supply as they compare the notes of John Gilchrist in this regard to current scientific thinking.  Gilchrist's pertinent insights are highlighted as he considers possible reasons for the extensive diminution of the fish supply.

MARITIME MEMORIES:  Brian Ingpen muses on the maritime involvement in wartime eras, highlighting the enormous impact they had on global shipping as merchant ships were destroyed resulting in massive loss of lives amongst non-military crew.  These merchant vessels ran the risk of being showered with bombs from warships or being torpedoed by submarines.

KEELHAULED:
   One only has to read Claire Attwood's article in this issue to get a small understanding of what was highlighted in a paper authored by Askel Sundstrom of the University of Gothenberg. Both the paper and the article make it abundantly clear that corruption is taking place within the fisheries sector and its unlikely that the threat of being Keelhauled will hold any sway - but we nominate those involved anyway.  

APPLAUD:
 
We applaud the 51 trawler owners and operaters in South Africa's Deep Sea Trawling Industry Association (SADSTIA) who are instrumental in ensuring that the deep-sea trawl fishery remains sustainable. SADSTIA heard during June that the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) had approved a further five-year certification for the fishery.
