Specie Collapse on Thukela Shelve

Loss of estuarine function: - The prolonged closures of the St Lucia estuary mouth have had a negative impact on the estuarine functioning of the estuary system. There has been a noticeable reduction in marine migrant fish species, such as the Natal stumpnose Rhabdosargus sarba, and the shallow water prawn fishery on the Thukela Banks has collapsed as St Lucia has ceased to function as a nursery for the shallow water prawn and other species (figure 22).
