On the 20th of March 2006, the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEAT) published the Draft legislation for the White Shark cage diving industry Policy and Regulations in the South African Governmental Gazette for public comment. This is a very important step towards a regulated White Shark viewing and cage-diving industry, and one that has been in the process for several years already.
Michael Scholl sent in his comments and recommendations with regards to the proposed draft regulation and policy on the 21st of April 2006.
