Namibia fishing regulations
« on: July 21, 2017, 11:41:03 am »
Hi

Has anyone seen the new fishing regulations in Namibia? I have read through the documents and understand that if you want to bring fish back to SA you have to pay the fees according to species and weight? Do I understand it correctly? And then secondly the new fishing permits at almost R1500 per month? that's seem like daylight robbery to me.

Nothing on the internet. Here is a link of their regulations    R168 for a year license or monthly R 14

You only need a import permit from South Africa side to bring the fish in

Just stick to the quantity limit and you will be safe and all fish must be in a hole state and size limit

Hope this will help

Well this will be the end of our group trips every Feb ,  :shk normally we hire a house/s and go for 2 to 4 weeks , Pensioners staying longer and the employed making shorter trips in relay fashion.  :dunno:  I am sure the landlords/restaurants/and bottle stores will protest , hopefully they change fees and the classification of recreational fishermen as a result .  :toppie:   
My wife allows me to keep all the fishing tackle I can hide.

The only hope we have is that they havent given a date as to when it will be inforced. Wonder if one buy a yearly permit know for R140 something if it will still be valid when new price inforced?

Update.

Looks like you can also buy pro rata per day but its still the same rate, 50X30 is 1500 or 50X7 or 50 per day.

or you can go and read and see the new law
http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/showthread.php/280072-Namibia-Recreational-Fishing-Permits-N-1500-month!!
Or google #6342-Gov N158-159.pdf its the notice.

It seems as though the Nam authorities bowed to the public uproar...
Fees reverted back to what they were... unconfirmed.



Now is not a good time to go fishing... said nobody... EVER!!
