President confirms full transfer of fisheries functions to DAFF

The President confirmed in November 2010 that he intends signing a further proclamation in due course transferring all fisheries-related functions currently with the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) to the Department of Fisheries (DAFF).

This would mean that the extremely costly process of setting up the Oceans Branch at DEA in 2010 would have been for nought and a further indication of just how proper planning and respect for the management of public funds are of little concern to this government.

It will also be interesting to see what happens with the all the duplicate staff hired by the Oceans Branch to date.
