CAPE TOWN - The Fisheries Minister says change is needed in his Department to save South Africa's marine life.
Senzeni Zokwana says half of the country's fish stock are in trouble.
But he believes there is still time to turn the situation around.
A report on South Africa's sea life has been released on World Oceans Day, and it doesn't look good.
The Department is particularly concerned about the poaching of abalone and lobster.
