LISTEN: Hopes high with sardine activity reported in the Eastern Cape

The Kwazulu-Natal Sharks Board says the early signs of a possible bumper sardine run are a lot more positive in 2018 than in recent years.

The sharks board conducted its second observation flight to the Eastern Cape today.

The board's Mike Anderson-Reade says they spotted a lot more activity in the Mazeppa Bay area, north of East London.

However, he says it is still quiet from there towards KwaZulu-Natal.

Water temperatures of around 19.5 degrees are needed for ideal sardine run conditions.

Anderson-Reade says predators will also then need to push fish up the coast.
