Concerns were initially raised by the Department of Water Affairs (DWA) relating to water quality in Small Bay and specifically discharge of waste by-products by the fishing industry into the bay. It was pointed out that although willing to be part of a monitoring programme, they were not the only impactors and therefore should not be required to carry the costs alone.
Today we can proudly state that our contributors represent a broad cross section of local industries, as well as local government, all of whom are impactors to a greater or lesser degree.
These entities contribute to the Trust on a purely voluntary basis and are to be commended for their commitment to our better understanding and management of this fragile environment (See cover page).
