Abstract: This report is a synthesis of the recent research findings and available knowledge pertaining to the Nahoon, Qinira and qunube estuarine systems in the East London area. It provides the different groups and individuals involved with the management and utilisation of these estuaries with access to expert knowledge and published opinion that might otherwise be unavailable or of which they might otherwise be unaware. The report also provides a description of the abiotics and biotics characteristics of the river catchments and of the physical processes, current utilisation and recent changes in the estuaries. In addition, the flora and fauna of the estuarine systems are described, with particular reference to human influences on the status of those systems. A synthesis of these diverse data is then presented. The synthesis provides an account of the present state of the systems, the state of knowledge, the problems that exist or are likely to occur and broad recommendations for the treatment of those problems.
