It is a lengthy document, and I suggest you take a look at it; it proposes among other things, a thorough plan for restoration and rehabilitation.But for me, the most important proposal is to establish the Breede river estuary as a catch and release zone for dusky kob. Concerned individuals are invited to submit to the Minister their comments or inputs. I implore every angler that cares about the future of the Breede River to submit a letter to the minister supporting the management system and in particular to call for the catch and release of dusky kob in the Breede River. I am also asking you to please call for the daily catch limit of 5 spotted grunter per person per day, to be reduced to 2 spotted grunter per person per day.
This is your chance to make a difference. You can submit your letter to both the following email addresses:
Submissions closes on the 19th of August 2016
If you don't have time for a long letter, please just copy and paste the following paragraph and send it to the email addresses above:
I strongly support the proposal to establish the Breede River Estuary as a catch and release zone for dusky kob, argyrosomus japonicus.
