Cape Town - Viking Fishing Holdings said it went to court to get an interim interdict to suspend hake inshore trawling to protect the jobs of 179 people and make sure the fishing rights allocation is “rational”.  

Speaking to Fin24 on Monday, director of Viking Fishing Holdings Tim Reddell said there are no winners in the court process. “We’re also not being allowed to fish, but the point is that’s the only way in which we can ensure that when the (review) process is concluded there’s fish available for everyone.” 

On January 3, Judge Lee Bozalek granted an interim order to Viking Inshore Fishing. It placed all hake inshore trawling on hold until the next court appearance on February 6, during which the Cape High Court will hear arguments for and against lifting the interdict.
