Chronicles of The Oricle 7

By: Natasha Rambaran

The seine net fishing industry in Durban has a long history dating back to the 1850s! As indicated by the Chronicles of The Oricle instalment from October 1993, the seine-netters and SAAMBR also have a long history. This relationship continues today, as our Curatorial Team try to attend seine-netting activities, in the hope of collecting valuable specimens for display in the aquarium.
