FROM THE BRIDGE:

WRECK RECOVERY:  While mapping the Amathole seabed, a group of scientists made an interesting discovery as they unintentionally hauled pieces of a wreck on board.

PERSONAL SAFETY:  Mike Heads discusses how a recent fatality in the Port of Durban should prompt members of the maritime industry to take personal safety seriously.

TRANSFORMATION:  A packed room of almost 200 delegates recently gathered in Pretoria, South Africa to discuss how to use policy and strategy to promote maritime black business development.  


COLUMNS:

THROUGH THE LENS:  Claire Attwood goes in search of East Africa's Dugong - a large lumbering marine mammal that seems to have all but disappeared.  The animals were once seen in large herds of between 60 to 100 strong.

AT THE END OF THE LINE:  Mark Botha reports back on the progress being made in the creation of The Collective - a unifying body that aims to protect the rights of Small Scale Fishers.

MARITIME MEMORIES: Brian Ingpen shares passions and memories with a reader from New Zealand.
