NOVEMBER 17, 2014

Environmental Affairs Minister, Edna Molewa, says that the site for the Algoa Bay Aquaculture Development Zone was selected as part of Operation Phakisa.

Replying to a question in the National Council of Provinces, the Minister said that the selection of “priority sites” for aquaculture development was “facilitated during Operation Phakisa”.

Molewa said further information could be obtained from Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), which was the lead department.

Operation Phakisa is a fast-track mechanism that has been adopted by government that is focused initially on the “Blue Economy”.

She added that questions on the economic impact of the fish farm should be referred to DAFF. - MetroMinutes.
