About this book:

Locked up for poaching, Shuhood Abader began writing his story. For years, he had been a cog in a criminal industry stretching from the Cape to China. Abader's account takes us right into the heart of the crisis.
Kimon de Greef is the local expert on the illicit abalone trade and contextualises Abader's tale by showing how the system works.
Poacher tells the story of a deadly black market; but it is also the story of one man, deeply conflicted, and searching for a better way.
