  1. Catch and effort of the shore and skiboat linefisheries along the South African Eastern Cape Coast

    Catch and effort of the shore and skiboat linefisheries along the South African Eastern Cape Coast

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    An assessment of catch and effort in the Eastern Cape shore and skiboat linefisheries was undertaken between 1994 and 1996 by means of roving creel and access point surveys. Catch-and-effort data were obtained from direct observation of 3 273 shore-fishers,...
  2. Feeding biology of the roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em> (Pisces: Sparidae)

    Feeding biology of the roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em> (Pisces: Sparidae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The sparid Chrysoblephus laticeps is a benthic carnivore that feeds on a wide variety of reef-associated prey. Small roman predominate on shallow subtidal reefs and prey non-selectively on crustaceans and polychaetes. Prey are ingested whole and prey size is apparently...
  3. Aspects of the recreational ski-boat fishery off the Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Aspects of the recreational ski-boat fishery off the Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The number of anglers and boats participating in the Eastern Cape ski-boat line fishery is high, and at the Port Elizabeth Deep-Sea Angling Club effort increased by a factor of 1,6 between 1975 and 1982. Ski-boat fishing is principally a...
  4. The growth of <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em> (Teleostei: Sparidae), with comments on diet and reproduction

    The growth of <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em> (Teleostei: Sparidae), with comments on diet and reproduction

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Aspects of the growth, diet and reproductive biology of the sparid Cymatoceps nasutus were examined. Although they are caught in relatively low numbers, these endemic fish are important to the South African recreational boat and shore fisheries because of their...
  5. A survey of the recreational rock-angling fishery at Port Elizabeth, on the south-east coast of South Africa

    A survey of the recreational rock-angling fishery at Port Elizabeth, on the south-east coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    A recreational rock-angling fishery on South Africa's Eastern Cape coast was studied on the basis of random sampling which aimed at removing the sample bias usually associated with such studies. The fishery is primarily recreational and catch per unit effort...
  6. The biology of the white musselcracker <em>Sparodon durbanensis</em> (Pisces: Sparidae) on the Eastern Cape coast, South Africa

    The biology of the white musselcracker <em>Sparodon durbanensis</em> (Pisces: Sparidae) on the Eastern Cape coast, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Aspects of the biology of the musselcracker Sparodon durbanensis, an important shore-angling species on the south-eastern coast of South Africa, are described from material collected between August 1984 and March 1987. Juvenile fish live in tidal pools and in shallow...
  7. Validation of age estimates in sparid fish using flubrochrome marking

    Validation of age estimates in sparid fish using flubrochrome marking

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The marking of sparid otoliths by means of oxytetracycline and alizarin complexone was investigated by immersion, feeding and intraperitoneal and intramuscular injections. Of these techniques, immersion for 24 h in a 100–150 mg·ℓ−1 seawater solution of alizarin complexone was found...
  8. Aspects of the biology of the abalone <em>Haliotis midae</em> (Linne, 1758) on the east coast of South Africa. 2. Reproduction

    Aspects of the biology of the abalone <em>Haliotis midae</em> (Linne, 1758) on the east coast of South Africa. 2. Reproduction

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The South African abalone Haliolis midae is a dioecious, broadcast spawner with a high fecundity. Histological examination and gonad bulk indices showed that individuals are iteroparous, asynchronous spawners, and that the breeding season extends from March through to October, spawning...
  9. Ichthyoplankton distribution and dispersal in the Tsitsikamma National Park marine reserve, South Africa

    Ichthyoplankton distribution and dispersal in the Tsitsikamma National Park marine reserve, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The nature of ichthyoplankton distribution within the Tsitsikamma National Park marine reserve was investigated in an attempt to evaluate the potential for export of larvae of commercially and recreationally important reef species to adjacent, exploited areas. Monthly, inshore ichthyoplankton samples...
  10. Growth characteristics in the otoliths of selected South African sparid fish

    Growth characteristics in the otoliths of selected South African sparid fish

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Growth characteristics in the otoliths of several South African sparid fish (Diplodus sorgus copensis, D. cervinus hottentotus, Chrysoblephus laticeps, Cymotoceps nasutus, Pochymetopon grande, Rhobdosargus holulbi and Sparodon durbonensis) were investigated. The micro-incremental pattern of deposition in the otoliths conformed to...
