An informal coastline tour

2008-02-01 00:00

IN the early summer of 2005 husband and wife team Chris Marais and Julienne du Toit set out on a 70-day journey that would see them traverse the entire length of the South African coastline from Alexandra Bay in the west to Kosi Bay in the east.

The closing chapter, written by Du Toit, deals with a subject that is causing much concern and debate - since the late nineties pelagic fishing stocks have been moving steadily eastwards from their traditional west coast haunts. The reason for this is not yet fully understood although both overfishing and global warming have been blamed. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
