CAPE TOWN - The Fisheries Minister says change is needed in his Department to save South Africa&39;s marine life.

Senzeni Zokwana says half of the country&39;s fish stock are in trouble.

But he believes there is still time to turn the situation around.

A report on South Africa&39;s sea life has been released on World Oceans Day, and it doesn&39;t look good.

The Department is particularly concerned about the poaching of abalone and lobster.
