The department of environmental affairs states that IT is in charge of boat-based whale watching and white shark cage diving. However, just to make sure that we, the public, are thoroughly confused, the department of agriculture, forestry and fisheries’ new website on fisheries (http://www.nda.agric.za/doaDev/fisheries/index.html) appears to confirm that IT is in charge of boat-based whale watching and white shark cage diving!

Would it not be helpful if the Ministers of these two departments actually sorted this mess out by agreeing that legally DAFF is the best placed authority to regulate these two sectors? Or is this too much to ask?
