    Re Objection to the proposed increases in recreation angling fees as contained in Government Gazette 32898 dated 29/01/2010 Notice 54 of 2010 refers. 

    Dear Madam, 

    With regards to the proposed permit increases for recreational fishing, I feel it would be undoing all the hard work and effort that government, conservation organizations, research institutions and the general public have invested in conserving and protecting our marine resources. These proposed new exorbitant fees will just encourage people that may have obtained permits in the past not to obtain permits in the future and use our natural resources illegally. Also the proposed fees will encourage people with permits to sell their catches illegally to cover the cost of the fees. 

     From an environmental perspective the proposed new fees will only put our natural marine resources under further stress from anthropogenic influences. Increases in annual permit fees are inevitable and most people accept that but the proposed new increases are way out of reach of the common person, even subsistence fisherman would not be able to afford the approximate R40. I would urge you to revise the proposed fees and increases them in line with current inflation figures.  

    Yours faithfully, 

    M Clarke
