Abstract: "A group of South African artisanal fishers has launched class action litigation against the Minister responsible for fishing rights allocation on the grounds that the policies pursued by the South African government are inequitable and discriminatory, and violate the human rights of artisanal fishers in the country. Is it possible that the introduction of a rights-based management system might violate the human rights of certain fishers?"
