Group Rights for Commercial Fishermen
|Coloured Fishing Community|

The idea is; these communities, many of which are (were prior to 1994) dependent on small scale commercial fishing for a livelihood, will be able to apply for commercial fishing licences as a community rather than as individuals. Not a terribly bad idea in fact, however it only addresses a part of the ex-commercial fishing community -the Western Cape based 'coloured' fishermen.
