Sub-sector Value of Mariculture production 2008-2010 (ZAR’millions)
43 farm closure notices issued to shellfish farms in 2010; 31 west of Cape Point and 12 east of Cape Point. Bio-toxins (Harmful Algal Blooms and Paralytic/Diarrhetic Shellfish Poison associated with upwelling), remainder due to presence of microbiological contamination (E. coli during high rainfall season). Highlight of Government Interventions
No closures due to other hazardous substances viz. heavy metals, pesticides, PCBs and radionuclides although risk is significant on shellfish. Aquaculture’s contribution to environmental change is considered to be minimal. Environmental Management and Monitoring Framework for mariculture being drafted. Sector specific strategy and incentives under consideration Highlight of Government Interventions
