Review Permit/Quota Management Systems South Africa

10 year permits for shark cage diving have been awarded to 2/6 of the existing shark cage diving operators. (Numbers to be confirmed) This means that at least 4 operators who have been in the industry for well over a hundred years collectively can no longer operate and people with minimal experience now have licenses?

This petition is for the DEA to review their processes in awarding permits. To think out of the box. Why not award joint-permits? Get people to work together. Yes, there must be a leveling of the playing fields...but why cut off knowledge, expertise and resources? Create joint ventures. Surely you can think of a win-win outcome?
