Access to fishing on Durban beachfront piers
16 November 2021 1:17 a.m.
Dear Portfolio Committee on Environment, Forestry and Fisheries,
To whom it may concern.
Fishing has been a big part of the local communities to sustain the income in many households ,and with the pandemic adding more pressure and undue stress to the poor communitie members which adds to the pressure of not being able to access the beachfront piers from 2010 it has put a lot of pressure on families.
Ion behalf of the Fisher folk in the community request that you look into reopening the beachfront piers so the members can fish to sustain their families.
I look forward to feedback in this regard which I will filter to the community
Thank you
Rajen Govender
