IN DEPTH:

IN DEPTH:  The recent announcement that a R3.3 million project is to commence to excavate the wreck of the Nieuwe Haarlem, a Dutch vessel that ran aground on 25 March 1647, highlights the rich maritime heritage that is literally sunk along the South African and African coastline. Natalie Janse takes a deeper look at what this could mean for the development of a new niche in the maritime industry given the current focus on expanding the Blue Economy under initiatives such as Operation Phakisa.


COLUMNS: 

FISHY BUSINESS: Shaheen Moolla asks if we should be reconsidering the manner in which fishing quotas are allocated. He says that not all fisheries are the same and must be treated (and therefore) managed differently.

THROUGH THE LENS:  Claire Attwood reports back on the one-day FishSA Conference held in Cape Town recently, which provided an opportunity for delegates to learn about a broad spectrum of topics and issues that are pertinent to the industry.

SCIENTIFICALLY SPEAKING:   Ryan Palmer opens the window on the uThukela muddy shelf edge to reveal an unique and hugely diverse seabed ecosystem. With increasing pressure for economic growth within the marine sector, it is essential that policy makers are provided with scientifically sound advice on which to base management decisions such as where to place marine protected areas and where they will be most beneficial, at the lowest cost to industry.  

TAKING B-BBEE ON BOARD:  Kgomotso Selokane opens up the discussion on B-BBEE in the maritime sectors with the aim of unpacking the scorecard and highlighting how to integrate the policy into your organisation in a truly fulfilling way. 

MARITIME MEMORIES:  Brian Ingpen writes about a time when three, even four fruit ships were loading, mainly for Britian and Europe, with others waiting in the roadstead for a loading berth to become available.

KEELHAULED:

This issue we keelhaul the South African Maritime Safety Authority for allowing the situation to develop that resulted in the inability to issue Seafarer Certificates timeously and left local seafarers facing a lack of income as they were placed on unpaid leave. 

APPLAUD:

  We applaud the volunteers on board the Logos Hope who sail around the world at their own expense and participate in outreach programmes in the countries that they visit.
