Sardines Run heads for Durban

The sardines reached Amanzimtoti on Monday and was expected to beach in Durban on Tuesday, or Wednesday at the latest.

Drew Aitken, a marine scientist following the shoals of sardines, who is attached to the Natal Sharks Board, said that there have been large shoals on the South Coast, especially at Amanzimtoti.

"They are (at Amanzimtoti) and since sardines are known to travel between 20 and 30km a day, I would say that they can be expected (in Durban) today.

"If not, then certainly on Wednesday," said Aitken
