  • Description
  • This is a compilation of news stories, uncut visual footage of the fishing community, conferences and interviews with fishermen. A news report deals with abalone poaching, the biggest issue confronting South African fisheries. As abalone licences have gone to large-scale operators, the small-scale subsistence fishers have been branded poachers. The film highlights the challenge of finding a balance between community interest and commercial fishing for the future.
