Rapid communication: The 1998 production and status of aquaculture in South Africa

Hoffman L.C. ; Swart J.J. ; Brink D. (2000)


The total South African aquacultural production for 1998 was 5301 t with a total value of ZAR 228.986 m. (US$ 38.167 m.). The major attributer to this income was the koi carp industry (ZAR 135 m.) and the rainbow trout industry (ZAR 24.75 m.). The abalone industry has now moved into a commercial production phase with the production of 22 t at a value of ZAR 5.94 m. This should increase exponentially within the next number of years as more and more farms become fully operational.
