dc.description.abstract Describes the owner-skipper section in the fishing industry, and the nature of its operations. The distribution channels for fish and their derivatives in South Africa are reviewed, while the problems associated with the owner-skipper s disposal of his catches are analysed. The study identifies the consequences of an unregulated recreational fishing sector and makes recommendations to facilitate the disposal of catches made by owner-skippers. The report opens with a review of recent trends in catches and prices of the various sectors of the fishing industry. The Sea Fisheries Branch control of resources and the role of the Fisheries Development Corporation in the fishing industry are discussed. The owner-skippers are shown to be financially and personally committed to their boats and their operations. Due to the uncertainty attached to future catches, the only guarantee is the owner-skipper s experience and his knowledge of the fishing grounds. The individual full-time fisherman is forced to sell his catches to the big fishing companies who are in control of the distribution of fish. The report discusses recreational fishermen and the effect of their operations on the market. It is found that the amount of fish that may be taken from the sea will have to be restricted. The report suggests the establishment of a Co-operative for private boat owners. The major functions of the Co-operative should be to serve as a guaranteed market for its members fish and to look after the interests and the welfare of private boat owners. en
