  1. Baseline assessment of high-latitude coral reef fish communities in southern Africa

    Baseline assessment of high-latitude coral reef fish communities in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Western Indian Ocean (WIO) is a region where detailed coral reef fish research has been relatively limited. This study constitutes an assessment of the fish communities of seven southern African high-latitude coral reefs. The aim was to provide ichthyological...
  2. A characterisation of the paddle-ski fishery in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    A characterisation of the paddle-ski fishery in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) paddle-ski fishery in South Africa consists mainly of light-weight fishing kayaks operated by a single fisher in the marine nearshore environment. The social, economic, management and fisheries parameters of this sector were investigated during the period December...
  3. Long-term trends in the recreational shore-fishery for elf <em>Pomatomus saltatrix</em> (Pomatomidae) along the KwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa

    Long-term trends in the recreational shore-fishery for elf <em>Pomatomus saltatrix</em> (Pomatomidae) along the KwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Elf Pomatomus saltatrix account for between 28% and 80% of the annually recorded recreational shore-angling catch in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and have been subjected to various management regimes over the past 33 years. Management of the elf fishery was amended...
  4. Reef fish display station-keeping and ranging behaviour in the Pondoland Marine Protected Area on the east coast of South Africa

    Reef fish display station-keeping and ranging behaviour in the Pondoland Marine Protected Area on the east coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study assessed the role of the Pondoland Marine Protected Area (MPA) in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa by evaluating retention versus ‘spillover’ of exploited fishery species that were tagged in a 400 km2 no-take zone of the...
  5. Movement patterns of <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae): results from a long-term cooperative tagging project in South Africa

    Movement patterns of <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae): results from a long-term cooperative tagging project in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Understanding fish movement patterns and migrations is important for fisheries management as well as the identification and conservation of critical habitats. Data collected by the Oceanographic Research Institute's Cooperative Fish Tagging Project (ORI-CFTP) were used to describe the large-scale movement...
  6. Monitoring the recovery of a previously exploited surf-zone fish community in the St Lucia Marine Reserve, South Africa, using a no-take sanctuary area as a benchmark

    Monitoring the recovery of a previously exploited surf-zone fish community in the St Lucia Marine Reserve, South Africa, using a no-take sanctuary area as a benchmark

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Limiting accessibility to a fishing area can reduce fishing effort effectively and may therefore promote local recovery of depleted stocks. In January 2002, beach driving was banned in South Africa, thereby reducing angler access to large areas of the coastline,...
  7. Movement patterns of an endemic South African sparid, the black musselcracker <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em>, determined using mark-recapture methods

    Movement patterns of an endemic South African sparid, the black musselcracker <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em>, determined using mark-recapture methods

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study made use of data from three long-term fish tagging projects along the South African coastline to investigate the movement behaviour of the endemic black musselcracker Cymatoceps nasutus (Sparidae). From 1984 to 2016, a total of 3 430 C...
