Illegal abalone trade costs SA billions

The illegal trade of abalone has cost South Africa 96 million individual abalones, worth R10 billion, in just sixteen years!

A Cape Town resident, Karl Visser, is demanding that the South African government take all necessary measures to ensure that affected fishing communities are no longer subjected to the hardship resulting from the illegal abalone trade with the Far East. He wants government to deal with  corrupt public servants who benefit from the status quo as a first step in achieving this… and YOU can amplify his call for action to be taken!
