SARDINES activity monitors on Durban's coastline are holding thumbs that shoals of tiny silver fish make their arrival before the end of the World Cup.

Head of Operations at the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board Mike Anderson-Reade said although the sardines traditionally arrived in May and June it was not unusual for the fish to show up in July.
