Reports have come through from the South Coast that the first shoals of sardines for the season have just been netted.


The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board's Mike Anderson-Reade says a net of about 400 baskets was pulled ashore this morning at Hibberdene.

The haul is quite large for the beginning of the run - and will hopefully spark the start of a bumper season.

Anderson-Reade says there have also been reports of sardines at Margate main beach and Pumula.

He says officials will take a flight down the coast to pin-point exactly where the fish are.

"It's a little bit late, I think we've become accustomed to having the fish on our coast in the first couple of weeks of June so it is a little bit late but at least they are here now and I am sure people will enjoy all the sites and spectacles that go with it," he said.

The sardine hotline is 083 913 94 95

Sardines have been passing Mtwalume for a few days now. Today was very good with them arriving in the millions followed by sharks, game fish, whales and birds. Some guys netting had a good day.
