Got an email from the KZN Sharks Board at 10:19am with the latest on sardine run. Apparently rough seas are posing a problem, and that means netting of the sards will be really difficult as a result.
Here’s the statement:
First Sardine update for Thursday 23.6.2011 –
Conditions are not that good with large swells having picked up as well as ground swells coming through along the coastline.
As far as sardine activity is concerned, nettings took place yesterday with a couple of nets being taken at Illovo, Karridene and also at Umgababa. Today, however the conditions are not that good hindering the netters due to the big swell. Maybe later this afternoon we could see nettings taking place of Durban which is a little more protected and the swell is not to high.
We are flying later today and will give a further update in case of any change.
