Madoqua 18(1): 33-36



Visitor numbers to Sandwich [Africa] were at a maximum from December 1989 through March 1990 and appeared to be directly linked to be availability of edible fish species (kob, steenbras, galjoen, blacktail) which are seasonally abundant. Nearly 90 metric tonnes of these fish were removed during the survey period of 15 weeks, of which almost 75 tonnes were caught after the school holiday season. Anglers comprised 81% of the visitors during the school holidays (December-January); this figure increased to 97% after the holidays (February-March). The area is the only marine nature reserve on Namibia's coast and commercial fishing is a violation of the Nature Conservation Ordinance. However, the majority of fish caught apparently were sold for commercial gain. Side effects of visitor pressure were vehicle tracks on sensitive substrata and litter. To improve management of the area, daily fish bag limits on fish numbers and size should be imposed, catch statistics collected, and vehicles confined to specified routes. Furthermore, non-consumptive tourist use such as bird-watching and photography should be encouraged.
