For those of you that watched the enthralling BBC2 programme last night you could come away with an impression that the fishermen of the African coast between Cape Town and Zanzibar are rogues. Undoubtedly some are, but for each of those, there are far more that are trying to make a sustainable living and care passionately about their environment. We know as we have been to some of the places that practice good husbandry of the sea, all along this coast.

It is true that more should be done to educate the fishermen about the impact of some of their fishing practices. More consideration should be given to regulating such practices as the taking of just the shark fin and leaving the animal to drown.
