The board’s Greg Thomspon says a lot of activity was reported between Karridene and Umgababa, south of Amanzimtoti.

Thompson says any catch in the coming days could be affected by weather and sea conditions.

He says beachgoers must continue to check with local lifeguards to see if it is safe to enter the water.

Some shark safety gear has been removed from swimming beaches due to the sardine run.

“Bathing remains banned from Ansteys beach on the Bluff down to Umtentweni on the south coast,” said Thompson.

The annual sardine run is a major attraction for locals and visitors to the province’s coastline, with many people flocking to the beaches to watch netters pulling in their catch.
