Namibia boasts 14 surf angling clubs

Avatar of inke inke - 16. juillet 2018 - Sport

At the Namibian coast surf anglers quite often catch a spotted gully shark. These sharks are a sought-after prey in sport fishing because their weight is worth a lot of points for victory. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) classifies the spotted gully shark as potentially endangered.

Surf fishing means catching fish from the shoreline or wading in the surf. Namibia has 14 surf fishing clubs, and the various species of fish are caught on a catch-and-release basis. The clubs are affiliated to the Namibian Surf Angling Association (NSAA) which arranges five annual contests on the coast of Namibia. The Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources has allocated certain sections of the coast to surf fishing. Contests are held within those sections on a ten-kilometre stretch of beach for a day.
