After a quiet day following the major excitement of the 2020 sardine run coming alive in Ramsgate on Monday, the action picked back up on Wednesday, with netting taking place in the Illovo/Karridene area.

The sardine run takes place every winter, with the South Coast benefitting from the majority of the action.

The planet’s largest biomass migration sees billions of sardines moving northward along South Africa’s coastline resulting in a feeding frenzy that attracts a variety of marine life.

Under Level 3 lockdown, licenced seine netters are able to operate as long as they follow the precautionary measures implemented at businesses, including wearing masks, ensuring correct hygiene procedures and physical distancing.
