Letter from André Mouton

For some weeks now dead fish has been spotted /picked up by Sanparks (ebb & flow’s ) rangers along our coast from Swartvlei up until Wilderness

Swartvlei, Touwriver mouths has been closed for months , maybe even more than a year…

Greatbrak river mouth same story…

Finally the authorities woke up yesterday and opened Hartenbos river mouth , the results is sickening , dead fish were everywhere , some cob even up to 8kg were laying around dead…

Do we now want the same to happen everywhere along our coast, are there still conservationist around who care or is nature also being commercialised these days.

Anglers along the south coast are being harassed for permits , which we by the way take out year in , year out…

Poachers are operating on a regular basis especially at Touwriver , they are not harassed for their actions nor does law enforcement taking place to bring them to book.

Anglers along the coast are crying out about our river mouths but it falls on deaf ears or people are in denial of what’s going on around them. What needs to happen first before the powers that be wakes up.

Kind regards
André Mouton
