New regulations have been drafted related to the management of the Dwesa-Cwebe Marine Protected Area.
The regulations were gazetted on 4 November by the Department of Environmental Affairs and those who wished to comment were given 30 days to do so.
Masifundise and Coastal Links SA have prepared comments for submission as the regulations impacts the lives of small-scale fishers in the MPA. The submission was sent off yesterday, before the 4pm deadline.
As we had little time to prepare comments on these draft regulations, Masifundise will continue to consult with communities and reserves the right to add more comments on the draft regulations.
