There were slim pickings for seine netters at Durban’s South Beach yesterday when just one basket of sardines was brought ashore.

The city’s beaches are still open to bathers with the sardines yet to arrive in their numbers after the first shoal arrived in Durban early this month.

On Wednesday, netters caught about six baskets of sardines at Addington Beach.

Michael Anderson-Reade, chief executive of the Natal Sharks Board, said the recent bad weather had kept sardines away.

He said recent adverse weather had delayed the sardine run, but this had happened before.

Morgan Subramanian, of Durban Seine Netters, was hoping for calm seas and steady temperatures to bring the fish. – Daily News Reporter
