Good day Sealiners,

given that some anglers may catch small tuna from the shore in some areas in SA - we have decided to copy this topic over from the offshore section:

we are a research team with Rhodes University working with WIOMSA (https://www.wiomsa.org) on a project which aims to evaluate the importance of skipjack and kawakawa tuna in the South African fishery. This project falls under the umbrella of a much larger project investigating tuna in the Western Indian Ocean Region - but we are specifically focussed on these two small tuna species in South Africa.

We are distributing a a short online survey for anglers in South Africa who catch or target tuna. The focus of the survey is to evaluate the importance of these species in the South African fishery to inform future conservation and management of these species which are of growing importance to anglers around Southern Africa and the rest of the world.

If you are a tuna angler, or regularly catch tuna while targeting other gamefish, please consider taking 15 minutes to fill in the following online survey: https://forms.gle/tRiLzZsDA7GhZDbGA

If you have any queries or questions, please feel free to PM us here or email us on satunaresearch@gmail.com.

Any responses we get will be very helpful!

Thank you

Research Team
