PLENTY OF FISH IN THE SEA (?)

Do you remember this saying – and we thought it was true? Sadly, we all know that in a single lifetime that is no longer so.

But what exactly is the situation?

  • What is the current state of play in marine fisheries?
  • What are the big issues?
  • What are we doing about them?
  • What can each one of us do?
  • What about small-scale fisheries in SA
  • WWF’s small-scale fisheries improvement project in the Kogelberg

 

These are very important questions for the Cape Whale Coast, with 120 km of coastline and many communities dependent on marine resources.

 

You are cordially invited to a talk on the state of marine fisheries.  John Duncan, Senior Manager of the WWF-SA Marine Programme, will outline WWF’s broader work around sustainable fisheries. Mkhululi  Silandela, WWF small-scale fisheries officer, will talk about small-scale fisheries with a particular focus on the on-going work with that sector in the Kogelberg region.

 

WHEN: WEDNESDAY 25 JUNE AT 16H30 (please note the new winter time)

WHERE: THE GREEN HOUSE, R43 VERMONT (on the mountain side of the R43)

 

THE TALK WILL BE FOLLOWED AT 17H30 BY A SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING OF MEMBERS
