The sardine run continues. A friend is busy netting at Winkelspruit at the moment and I heard a few minutes ago that an enormous shoal that is a few kilometres long is in the Trafalgar - Shelly Beach area and is moving up the coast \O .

Amazing how they change in size from year to year...maybe the Chinese have left them alone in lockdown? [CV19]

Very good! Last year it was worrying due to the low numbers.

RP, the Chinese trawlers may have something to do with the size shoals annually. The weather, temperature, wind and sea conditions also play a huge role on whether or not the shoals move close enough to shore while they are passing here. I doubt if anyone really knows what exactly gets the shoals to behave as they do -O- .
