    What documentation is required to collect fish of the natal coast line and can you then sell them to Marine/pet shops?

    Apparently you can apply for a export license and send local fish off shore. I would like to know if you can sell these collect fish local?

    You then need a commercial collection permit.

    Oh, you will also have to check with the province you operate from. Check out the biodiversity act as well.

    I am sure you will get pushed from pillar to post. But hay give it a go and lead the path for others.
