Media Release: No Angling Allowed In Tsitsikamma

Date: 15th January 2001

Tsitsikamma National Park, which was proclaimed a national park in 1964 and was the first protected marine area in South Africa, will no longer allow any angling in its 5,5km seaward boundary. 

This follows the restrictions placed on any form of angling in marine protected areas as set out in the Marine Living Resources Act passed in 1998. The new restrictions took effect on 1 January 2001.  

Limited fishing was allowed in the park under the watchful eye of conservationists until the promulgation of this Act. The extreme depth of the water at the Tsitsikamma shore made it a sought-after angling spot for, among others, red steenbras and yellowtail.
