The City of Cape Town says their Marine Unit and Sanparks rangers have disrupted…

The City of Cape Town says their Marine Unit and Sanparks rangers have disrupted several poaching operations, but no arrests have been made. Inspector Wayne Dyason says in the Oliphantsbos area of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, officers recovered about 25 nets with over 400 crayfish. He says while the officers were confiscating the crayfish, the poachers attempted to ram their boat into the officers’ boat, but they managed to thwart theattempt to force their boat onto the rocks. Dyason says another two poaching incidents occurred yesterday, one in St James and the other in Camps Bay: “In the St James area law enforcement auxiliary officers spotted five divers in the water. They called in the local neighbourhood watch and the Marine Unit to assist. The officers pounced but the divers abandoned the abalone and fled. 268 shucked abalone and 134 unshucked abalone were recovered. On the 11th December officers from Camps Bay disrupted another poaching operation when they retrieved 12 abalone from the rocks in the Cosi Bay beach area.”
