    1. These smaller boats are handlining, catching reef and some shoal fish. At this time of the year they’re after snoek ( barracuda family), geelbek (Cape salmon) yellow tail, some tuna, albacore. Recently though we’ve been keeping a beady eye on a trawler which is experimenting in laying octopus traps with a view to commercial exploitation. We’re hoping that there is too much of a groundswell for it to be viable. They form part of the diet of seals and otters; take that link out of the food chain, then what?
