    Economic characteristics of demand in Namibia's marine recreational shore fishery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    A sample of 626 anglers was surveyed with a questionnaire to determine the expenditures, consumer surpluses and elasticities of demand associated with the Namibian recreational marine shore fishery in 1998. Two entirely different methods of valuation, the travel cost method...
  2. A spatio-temporal assessment of the <em>Trachinotus botla</em> shore-fishery in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    A spatio-temporal assessment of the <em>Trachinotus botla</em> shore-fishery in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The shore-fishery for Trachinotus botla in KwaZulu-Natal appears to be in a stable state. A per-recruit assessment showed that the species is currently underexploited (spawner biomass-per-recruit = 75% of pristine levels) and that fishing mortality could theoretically be increased. The...
  3. Age estimation, growth rate and size at sexual maturity of tigerfish <em>Hydrocynus vittatus</em> from the Okavango Delta, Botswana

    Age estimation, growth rate and size at sexual maturity of tigerfish <em>Hydrocynus vittatus</em> from the Okavango Delta, Botswana

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The aims of this study were to determine relative age, growth rate and size at maturity of tigerfish in the Okavango Delta as a basis for the development of a fisheries management plan. A total of 206 tigerfish Hydrocynus vittatus,...
  4. Age and growth of narrow-barred Spanish mackerel <em>Scomberomorus commerson</em> in the coastal waters of southern Mozambique and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Age and growth of narrow-barred Spanish mackerel <em>Scomberomorus commerson</em> in the coastal waters of southern Mozambique and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The narrow-barred Spanish mackerel Scomberomorus commerson is one of the most important linefish species caught in KwaZulu-Natal and southern Mozambique waters, forming the basis of important commercial, artisanal and recreational fisheries. A total of 439 S. commerson were sampled along...

    Fish response to the annual flooding regime in the Kavango River along the Angola/Namibian border

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The results of the first seasonal survey of the fish of the Kavango River flood-plain along the Angola/Namibia border are reported. The river experiences peak flooding from February through June, with the 375-km long floodplain extending up to 5 km...

    The structure of demersal assemblages off Namibia in relation to abiotic factors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Groundfish surveys carried out between October 1992 and October 1996 were used to describe the demersal assemblages of the northern Benguela along the Namibian coast. Multivariate analyses indicated a clear separation between shelf and slope habitats, which were divided into...
  7. A decade of exploitation and management of the Namibian hake stocks

    A decade of exploitation and management of the Namibian hake stocks

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The hake resource is the most important commercial fish species in the demersal sector of Namibia's fisheries, both in terms of annual catch and contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The fishery now spans four decades. In the 1960s and...
  8. An assessment of the recreational fishery in the St Lucia estuarine system, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    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...
