This paper identifies opportunities created by the SADC-EU EPA in the South African fisheries sector, highlighting both export potential and possible areas of co-operation.
It describes the wild capture commercial fishing sector as well as the aquaculture sector in South Africa.
It then outlines the liberalisation of tariffs proposed in the EPA and provides a detailed analysis of South Africa´s trade composition in fishery as well as identifying the main fish commodities af-fected by the EPA.
These are then detailed individually.
Finally, it provides an overview of sustainable fisheries in South Africa to identify areas for future dialogue and collaboration.
