Abalone Right Holders Take Minister to Court

Abalone right holders in Zones E, F and G have applied on an urgent basis to review and set aside the decision of the Minister of Fisheries to allocate the 2011/2012 abalone TAC in contravention of the abalone policy.

The abalone right holders from Zones E, F and G appointed Feike and attorneys firm Von Lieres Cooper Barlow Hangone to advise them on their application. The right holders are represented by Advocate Darryl Cooke.

The application will initially seek an interim interdict against certain Zone C (Hawston and Hermanus) and Zone D (Kleinmond) abalone right holders who are allowed to fish abalone in Zones F and G. The interim interdict application will be heard on 17 January 2012.
