Capricorn Marine Environmental (Pty) Ltd (CapMarine) has developed high-level experience in the scientific, technical and practical aspects of observer deployment and fisheries consulting. The company was established by a trio of experts with backgrounds in marine resource management. Our initial national focus allowed us to gain expertise in marine monitoring, control and surveillance and at the same time establish a base of highly experienced marine observers. Since then our proven and sought after track record has expanded the company’s scope to include international observer contracts with the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), amongst others. Ongoing associations with environmental Non Profit Organisations (NPOs) such as WWF and BirdLife International have enabled collaborative projects concerning responsible fishing practices and further seabird monitoring training.
