Fishing season opens

Fishing season commenced with effect from March 1 and will end on December 31, a press release from the Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism has announced.

The release indicates that fishers with valid fishing permits and licenses will be allowed to fish in water bodies specified in the permits and licenses using the appropriate recommended methods, practices and equipment.  

The ministry further advises those who want commercial and recreational fishing licenses for specific water bodies to seek assistance from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks offices.  

The release reminds the public to obtain permits from Water Utilities Corporation to fish in any specified designated fishing dams.  

Furthermore, the public is informed that the prohibition of export of dry fish is no longer in effect and therefore export of dried fish is allowed. 

The release says any person who wishes to export from Botswana any fresh or dry fish must obtain an export permit from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. ENDS
