    An assessment of the recreational fishery in the St Lucia estuarine system, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    St Lucia is one of the largest estuarine systems in Africa, and attracts thousands of anglers each year. Catchcard data from the National Marine Linefish System for the years 1986–1999 were analysed to determine catch composition, catch per unit effort...
  2. The role of the Tsitsikamma National Park in the management of four shore-angling fish along the south-eastern Cape coast of South Africa

    The role of the Tsitsikamma National Park in the management of four shore-angling fish along the south-eastern Cape coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The role of the Tsitsikamma National Park (TNP) in the management of four important shore-angling fish (Diplodus sargus capensis, Diplodus cervinus hottentotus, Pachymetopon grande and Dichistius capensis) was evaluated using data obtained from two independent studies conducted over a similar...
  3. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE GROWTH RATE OF MPASA, <em>OPSABIDIUM MICROLEPIS</em> (GUNTHER, 1864) (PISCES: CRYPRINIDAE), BY LENGTH FREQUENCY ANALYSIS

    AN ASSESSMENT OF THE GROWTH RATE OF MPASA, <em>OPSABIDIUM MICROLEPIS</em> (GUNTHER, 1864) (PISCES: CRYPRINIDAE), BY LENGTH FREQUENCY ANALYSIS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    The mpasa, Opsaridium microlepis, is an important commercial species in areas of Lake Malawi near major inflowing rivers during annual spawning migrations. Plots of length frequency data collected over a series of years from mpasa catches in the Bua and...
  4. CONSERVATION IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT: SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE MANAGEMENT OF SHORE-ANGLING IN THE SOUTHWESTERN CAPE

    CONSERVATION IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT: SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE MANAGEMENT OF SHORE-ANGLING IN THE SOUTHWESTERN CAPE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    Recreational shore angling is a very important sector of South Africa's diverse marine fisheries. The number of anglers participating in this sport is increasing at 6% per annum and currently stands at approximately 380 000. This number is expected to...
  5. Evaluation of acoustic transmitter implantation and determination of post-translocation behaviour of largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in a South African impoundment

    Evaluation of acoustic transmitter implantation and determination of post-translocation behaviour of largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in a South African impoundment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides are an important angling species that are often displaced during catch-and-release fishing tournaments. The impact of acoustic transmitter implantation on this species and the effect of displacement distance on their behaviour were tested. In April 2010,...
  6. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE GROWTH RATE OF MPASA, <em>OPSABIDIUM MICROLEPIS</em> (GUNTHER, 1864) (PISCES: CRYPRINIDAE), BY LENGTH FREQUENCY ANALYSIS

    AN ASSESSMENT OF THE GROWTH RATE OF MPASA, <em>OPSABIDIUM MICROLEPIS</em> (GUNTHER, 1864) (PISCES: CRYPRINIDAE), BY LENGTH FREQUENCY ANALYSIS

    The mpasa, Opsaridiwm microlepis, is an important commercial species in areas of Lake Malawi near major inflowing rivers during annual spawning migrations. Plots of length frequency data collected over a series of years from mpasa catches in the Bua and...
  7. Shark fishing effort and catch of the ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em> in the South African competitive shore-angling fishery

    Shark fishing effort and catch of the ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em> in the South African competitive shore-angling fishery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    An integrated telephone and on-site questionnaire survey was used to estimate total shark fishing effort and specific catch of the ragged-tooth shark Carcharias taurus by coastal club-affiliated shore-anglers, primarily along the east coast of South Africa. Mean total shark fishing...
  8. Spatial and seasonal distribution patterns of the ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em> along the coast of South Africa

    Spatial and seasonal distribution patterns of the ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em> along the coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Catches from competitive shore-anglers, inshore boat-based anglers and sightings by spearfishers and divers were used to infer the spatial and seasonal movement patterns of young-of-the-year (<1.2m TL), juvenile (1.2–1.8m TL), sub-adult (1.8–2.4m TL) and adult (>2.4m TL) ragged-tooth sharks Carcharias...
  9. An assessment of participation, catch and effort in the KwaZulu-Natal shore-based marine linefishery, with comments on management effectiveness

    An assessment of participation, catch and effort in the KwaZulu-Natal shore-based marine linefishery, with comments on management effectiveness

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of current management of the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) shore-based marine linefishery. Methods used included a stratified-random creel survey and an associated questionnaire survey. The study was undertaken between February 2009...
