The Minister of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Marthinus van Schalkwyk will officially take delivery of and name the new research vessel, namely Ellen Khuzwayo, on Thursday.

“The delivery of the new state of the art vessel comes at a time when fish stocks are declining globally,” says spokesperson for Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Mava Scott.

The declining of stock is due to various reasons, one of them being the change in environmental conditions.

“The vessel will play a key role in gathering scientific research on inshore marine resources and the marine environment,” says Scott.
