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. 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. 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.
