Proposed fish farm will be first of its kind

SOUTH AFRICA - The proposed Port Elizabeth marine fish farm will breed up to 18 tons of fish at a time and, if it proves commercially sustainable, will be the first of its kind in the country.</b> <br><br> Those are just two of the interesting details which have emerged about the multi-million Irvin & Johnson (I&J) venture which has entered a new phase with the media placing of a notice of assessment under way, and a call for public participation. <br><br> I&J, the SA fisheries giant which specialises in the deep-sea hake trawling sector, has launched the project both as a business venture and as an initiative to take the pressure off wild populations, many of which are in sharp decline. <br><br> <i>Source: The Herald Online</i>
