Investigative documentary 10min
Commercial shark fishing is one of the least publicized industries in South Africa. Experts, restaurant owners and retailers say that shark meat is a viable food source but regulations and policy is in disarray;. This documentary shows that this industry exists and has to be regulated to be susatainable. We travel along the Eastern Cape coastline to a St Francis Bay factory that processes shark and sells it. We meet shark conservationists to hear what the industry could do for tourism and environmental impact and a restaurant owner who serves shark on his menu.
