  1. Movement patterns of red steenbras <em>Petrus rupestris</em> tagged and released in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa

    Movement patterns of red steenbras <em>Petrus rupestris</em> tagged and released in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Movement patterns of red steenbras Petrus rupestris were obtained from fish tagged and released in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa. Of 217 fish tagged, 38 were recaptured. Juveniles (<700 mm FL) were resident, whereas adults (>700 mm FL) migrated...
  2. Nearshore surface current patterns in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa

    Nearshore surface current patterns in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The pattern of surface currents in the Tsitsikamma National Park, South Africa, was studied with holey-sock drogues released in batches of up to four at a time, from 1996 and 1998. Drogues were left to drift for either 6 or...
  3. 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...
  4. Biogeographic patterns in rocky intertidal communities in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Biogeographic patterns in rocky intertidal communities in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    On the east coast of southern Africa, marine biogeographic boundaries have previously been unresolved. This paper analyses large-scale patterns of community structure of rocky intertidal shores along the whole of the KwaZulu-Natal coast, based on abundance data covering 220 macroalgal...
  5. Identifying management preferences, institutional organisational rules, and their capacity to improve fisheries management in Pemba, Mozambique

    Identifying management preferences, institutional organisational rules, and their capacity to improve fisheries management in Pemba, Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The potential to improve the management of fisheries in Pemba, Mozambique, were explored by evaluating stakeholder's preferences for management and the key institutional design elements of the fisheries organisations or community councils of fisheries (CCPs). We interviewed fishers, community leaders...
  6. Area utilisation and activity patterns of roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em> (Sparidae) in a small marine protected area

    Area utilisation and activity patterns of roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em> (Sparidae) in a small marine protected area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Information on the movement of fish is vital to determine the effectiveness of marine protected areas (MPAs) for fish conservation and fisheries management. This study investigates area utilisation and activity patterns of 13 adult roman Chrysoblephus laticeps (Sparidae) using telemetry...
  7. The effect of marine protected areas on an exploited population of sex-changing temperate reef fish: an individual-based model

    The effect of marine protected areas on an exploited population of sex-changing temperate reef fish: an individual-based model

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The effect of two marine protected areas (MPAs) on roman Chrysoblephus laticeps (Sparidae), an exploited reef-fish species inhabiting the South African temperate south coast, was simulated with a spatially explicit, individual-based model based on geographically correct habitat distribution. The model...
  8. Effects of fishing on a temperate reef community in South Africa 1: ichthyofauna

    Effects of fishing on a temperate reef community in South Africa 1: ichthyofauna

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Exploitation of temperate reef fish not only affects the target species but potentially changes the composition of reef fish assemblages. This study investigated the effect of fishing on the ichthyofaunal community at protected and exploited sites around the Goukamma Marine...
  9. Why do we need to integrate population genetics into South African marine protected area planning?

    Why do we need to integrate population genetics into South African marine protected area planning?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    South Africa is home to a wide variety of marine flora and fauna distributed over at least three biogeo-graphic provinces. Currently, 9% of the coastline is protected by ‘no-take’ marine protected areas (MPAs), but the distribution of MPAs is uneven...
  10. Marine reserve effects on population density and size structure of commonly and rarely exploited limpets in South Africa

    Marine reserve effects on population density and size structure of commonly and rarely exploited limpets in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Marine reserves are commonly used to conserve living resources, but their effectiveness where policing is difficult is unclear. We compared monthly population density and size structure data collected over 20 months for two rarely and two commonly exploited intertidal limpets...
