The KZN Subsistence fishermen’s forum representing 12 000 subsistence fishermen, together with the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance, will be holding a fisherman’s walk on Durban’s Promenade on the 8th of July 2017 at 8am. The start of the walk will be from Snake park pier, ending at North Pier. The walk will be raising awareness of the Japanese, Chinese and other international trawlers being allowed, by our government, to fish in our waters during the winter months thereby depriving our local fishermen of sardines and shad which are in abundance at this time. We will also report back on our successful meeting with TRANSNET. Fishermen permit application will be given at the meeting.
