The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has officially released the status of the South African Marine Fishery Resources, yesterday.

The report is an annual publication that presents and summarises the current status of the South African fisheries resource.

This document serves to evaluate the status and management of South Africa’s fish stocks.

Spokesperson Lionel Adendorf adds that it is very difficult to say whether the depletion of particular stocks are the  result of over fishing or poaching but what is known is that there are also ecological factors that come to play when considering declines of particular species.

He adds that it needs to be understood and appreciate  the fact that it is not only a South African phenomenon only but it is also  an international phenomena.
