  1. Alternate explanations of the dispersal pattern of galjoen <em>Dichistius capensis</em>

    Alternate explanations of the dispersal pattern of galjoen <em>Dichistius capensis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The movement behaviour of galjoen Dichistius capensis (>250mm total length) was studied by using a tag and recapture technique. A total of 25 191 galjoen was tagged at four sites in South Africa. Three of the sites were in fully...
  2. Towards the declaration of a large marine protected area: a subtidal ichthyofaunal survey of the Pondoland coast in the Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Towards the declaration of a large marine protected area: a subtidal ichthyofaunal survey of the Pondoland coast in the Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    A subtidal marine ichthyofaunal survey was carried out on shallow reefs (1–30m deep) in the Pondoland region between the Mtamvuna River and Port St Johns in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. The purpose of this survey was to provide the...
  3. Coastal currents and temperatures along the eastern region of Algoa Bay, South Africa, with implications for transport and shelf–bay water exchange

    Coastal currents and temperatures along the eastern region of Algoa Bay, South Africa, with implications for transport and shelf–bay water exchange

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Boat ADCP surveys and an eight-month deployment of a 1 200 kHz ADCP were used to study the nearshore (5–25 m depth) current and temperature patterns along the eastern coastal region of Algoa Bay, on the south-east coast of South...
  4. Socio-economic aspects of boat-based ecotourism during the sardine run within the Pondoland Marine Protected Area, South Africa

    Socio-economic aspects of boat-based ecotourism during the sardine run within the Pondoland Marine Protected Area, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Understanding recreational aspects of the tourism industry developing around the KwaZulu-Natal sardine run is important for the protection and sustainability of the Pondoland Marine Protected Area (MPA), on the south-east coast of South Africa. Between June and July 2007, a...
  5. An alternative method for estimating the status of resident reef fish stocks, based on differential fishing effort across a marine reserve boundary

    An alternative method for estimating the status of resident reef fish stocks, based on differential fishing effort across a marine reserve boundary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The stock status of roman Chrysoblephus laticeps was estimated in the Goukamma, a temperate South African marine protected area (MPA). Standardised catch per unit effort (CPUE) from a controlled angling survey on both sides of the MPA border was employed...
  6. Recolonisation of the Robberg Peninsula (Plettenberg Bay, South Africa) by Cape fur seals

    Recolonisation of the Robberg Peninsula (Plettenberg Bay, South Africa) by Cape fur seals

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Cape fur seal Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus colony at Robberg Peninsula, Plettenberg Bay, on the south-east coast of South Africa, was driven to extinction by indiscriminate harvesting by the late 1800s. Seals only began to recolonise this site in the...
  7. Temporal variability of a temperate fish assemblage in Africa's oldest marine protected area

    Temporal variability of a temperate fish assemblage in Africa's oldest marine protected area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    A standardised research-based, shore-angling survey was conducted in the 47-year-old Tsitsikamma National Park Marine Protected Area (MPA) between 1998 and 2005. The aim of this study was to examine variability in community structure, relative abundance (catch per unit effort, CPUE)...
  8. Comparing fish communities in sanctuaries, partly protected areas and open-access reefs in South-East Africa

    Comparing fish communities in sanctuaries, partly protected areas and open-access reefs in South-East Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Fish were surveyed by visual census on offshore reefs in Mozambique and eastern South Africa to compare (a) fully-protected ‘sanctuary’ areas, (b) ‘partly protected’ areas where recreational diving and limited fishing are permitted, and (c) ‘open’ unprotected areas. Community composition...
  9. Diet of the Cape fur seal <em>Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus</em> at the Robberg Peninsula, Plettenberg Bay, and implications for local fisheries

    Diet of the Cape fur seal <em>Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus</em> at the Robberg Peninsula, Plettenberg Bay, and implications for local fisheries

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Cape fur seals Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus were harvested to extirpation on the Robberg Peninsula, Plettenberg Bay, on the south-east coast of South Africa, between the 17th and early 20th centuries. Seals returned to Robberg in small numbers during the early...
  10. 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...
