ILLGEAL FISHING IN PLETT

Unread post by Alex46p »

Good day.

ILLEGAL FISHING HAS BECOME A SERIOUS PROBLEM HERE IN PLETT. A FISHERMAN CAN FISH ALMOST ANYWHERE IN PLETT, REMOVE AS MUCH BAIT AS HE WISHES AND REMOVE HAS MANY UNDERSIZED JUVENILE FISH AS THEY PLEASE WITH NO PROBLEM. THERE IS NO SANPARKSNOR CAPE NATURE OFFICIALS CHECKING FISHING LICENSES OR ANYTHING.

YESTERDAY I WAS FISHING AT NATURES VALLEY, ONE OF THE LAST GOOD FISHING SPOTS AS ALL THE OTHER AREAS HAVE BEEN DESIMATED, I ENCOUNTERED 20 FISHERMAN ALL CATCHING JUVENILE STUMPNOSE AND LEERVIS AND KEEPING THEM. BIG FISH POPULATIONS ARE DECLINING RAPIDLY.

SANPARKS NEEDS TO DEVELOP A WAY TO GIVE AUTHORITY TO LOCAL RESPONSIBLE FISHERMAN SO THAT WE CAN ASSIST IN PROTECTING OUR ECOSYSTEM. IT IS DISGUSTING TO SEE THEM RAPING NATURE IN OUR SO CALLED ECO FRIENDLY PLETTENBERG BAY.
