White mussel harvesting continues

Two people with wetsuits were spotted on the beach south of Walvis Bay on Sunday harvesting hundreds of white mussel. The drove a grey pick-up with an Outapi registration mark. The registration number was in the meantime reported to Fisheries). Anglers who saw the duo harvesting the mussels expressed concern this might be a renewed effort to illegally harvest white mussel for large scale illegal profit. The Minister of Fisheries recently halted a license for the harvesting of white mussel on commercial scale, and therefore activities such as this need to be reported to fisheries inspectors without delay.
