Swaziland fishery laws outdated

Experts have observed that Swaziland’s fishery laws are very outdated. The ACP Fish II Southern Africa Regional Manager, Leone Tarabusi, said fisheries in Swaziland were governed by the Protection of Fresh Water Fish Act of 1937 and regulations promulgated in 1973. “These laws are considered outdated and not able to give effect to Swaziland’s national food security and poverty-relief policy initiatives”, he stated.
The ministry of agriculture through the fisheries section, with financial support from the EU’s ACP Fish II programme for ACP and strategic legal support from Feike of South Africa, organised a two-day consultative workshop at the end of October. Many stakeholders in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors attended the workshop, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), subsistence fishers, fish farmers, sport fishers and representatives of various government departments and agencies.
