TAKING B-BBEE ON BOARD:  Kgomotso Selokane discusses the calculations associated with management control in the new codes.  According to the author, this involves the promotion of the appointment of black people to boards of directors, executive positions and top management positions.  

FISHY BUSINESS: Shaheen Moolla gets to grips with the 2016 Aquaculture Bill to ascertain whether it will help or hinder the development of an aquaculture industry in South Africa.  He maintains that there is incredibly little public discussion and debate on the draft Bill and on the promises of fish-farming more generally.  

THROUGH THE LENS:  Claire Attwood takes a closer look at the recent listing of Premier Food and Fishing Limited and Sea Harvest on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.  According to her column, these listings are likely to result in increased investment in both fishing and aquaculture, and indicate that peparations are well underway for the big rights allocations that lie ahead in 2020.

MARITIME MEMORIES:  Brian Ingpen plots the career path of George Mayhew whose successful career in the maritime industry started when he joined a Union Line vessel in 1917 at the age of 16.

CONFERENCE CALL:  Editor, Colleen Jacka, takes a look at some of the themes highlighted at the recent South African Maritime Industry Conference (SAMIC) held in Port Elizabeth and the eThekwini Maritime Summit held in Durban.  A call for closer collaboration between private and public sectors was highlighted as was the need to include the country's youth in future growth plans for the industry.

LOOK OUT THE WINDOW:  The Nautical Institute Command Seminar convened in Cape Town during April highlighted that, although ships have access to sophisticated technology, the need for old-fashioned navigational skills should never be under-rated.  Delegates got to grips with navigational accidents and their causes over the two-day event.
