For the first time since the regulation of the fishing industry was instituted in 1940, South Africa’s marine resources will be left unpatrolled for at least two weeks.

The DA has had many warnings about this.

The DA said that minister of agriculture, forestry and fisheries Tina Joemat-Pettersson may as well have published an advert announcing a free two-week poaching season.

The DA’s shadow deputy minister of agriculture, forestry and fisheries Pieter Van Dalen said a memorandum of understanding entered into by the ministers of fisheries and defence, indicates the Navy will now perform the shipping management functions of the fisheries department as of 1 April 2012.
