IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR SMALL-SCALE COMMERCIAL ABALONE TURFS IN THE EASTERN CAPE PROVINCE

An implementation plan was developed for an abalone Territorial User Rights Fishery (TURF) in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. The implementation plan focused on the abalone resources that are found between the Great Fish River in the West and the Mbashe River in the East. These are areas where traditional, rural, Xhosa-speaking communities live.
