Blackhand sole

The Blackhand sole lives in the demersal, oceanodromous, brackish, marine, depth range 1 - 60 m environment.

Cape hake, blackhand sole, and yellowfin and albacore tuna are some of the species harvested. Fishing (subsistence, commercial, and recreational), and related industries including boat construction employ tens of thousands of people. The large triangular Agulhas Bank is of major economic and biological importance. More
