Diversion of commercial fishing catch landings from Hout Bay harbour to Cape Town harbour
The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has made a decision to inform all stakeholders such as the Hake Longline Association, The Tuna Association and the Pelagic Association who usually use Hout Bay harbour for their commercial fishing landings to divert their landings to Cape Town harbour with immediate effect. This decision is due to the current unrest and volatile situation in Hout Bay harbour.
Notification for landings must continue to be channelled to the Chief Inspector of Hout Bay harbour, Mr Lucas Finnish. His contact details are on the permit conditions. His email address is: LucasF@daff.gov.za
This contingency plan to divert commercial landings from Hout Bay harbour to Cape Town harbour will remain in place until further notice.
