Tuna exporters to go to court

2013-12-27 00:00

THE Tuna Export Association will turn to court, rather than dock their trawlers when fishing rights lapse at the end of the year.

He said he had visited an empty client services centre at the Fisheries Department’s head office in Cape Town yesterday in an attempt to deliver a letter asking for the tuna industry to be exempted from the rights lapse so its fleet can continue fishing after Jan­uary 1. This letter can, however, only be handed over on January 2 when staff return from holiday.
