Recognition for fishing feature

November 9, 2017

 I was extremely thrilled when my feature on crayfish poachers and the potential impact of the new Small-Scale Fishing policy on illegal fishing won the regional Vodacom Journalist of the Year Award in the CSI/Sustainability category. 

 

Fingers crossed as it goes to the nationals!

Although the new policy held a lot of promise, many traditional fishers are still awaiting any real benefit from it. Keep an eye on my work for an update to the story...
