The Democratic Alliance has called on government to make good its promise to open the perlemoen fishery in Hawston near Hermanus in the Western Cape.
Spokesperson Gareth Morgan says Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson promised in November that the fishery would be opened in February this year.
Morgan says almost four months after the deadline, there is apparently still no date when it will be opened again.
In a reply to a DA parliamentary question in March, the Minister said she expected that an announcement on the opening of the fishery would be made in April.
