COLUMNS:

THROUGH THE LENS:  Claire Attwood discusses why the South African fishing industry could still face continued legal challenges despite the conclusion of the inshore trawl fishery matter.  She writes that there is still risk and uncertainty for companies with significant investment in fishing.

AT THE END OF THE LINE:  Mark Botha highlights some of the successes and challenges involved in developing a matrix for career path development in small scale fishers.  He provides a potential model for improved skills development through a suggested cooperative regime.
