Although industrial fisheries are a major pillar of the economy, artisanal fisheries remain of great importance for food security, employment and cultural identity.
Revenue and capacity building generated by the industrial fisheries sub-sector have supported significant national investment in the development and management of artisanal fisheries, and the two sub-sectors have complemented each other well.
We are located at the deep water fishing port in Providence on Mahe Island.
The fisheries sector, comprising of the industrial fishery, the small-scale and an aquaculture subsector, is one of the most important pillars of the Seychelles’s economy.
Fish plays a vital role in the nutrition of the people.
Per capita consumption of fish is high, variably reported to be between 48 and 65 kg per annum and fish contributes 35-40% of protein consumed by Seychellois.
The locally consumed fish is obtained mainly from the small-scale fishery.
The artisanal fishery, which is still an open access fishery, targets a diverse group of species ranging from hand-line caught demersal and semi-pelagic fish, small semi-pelagic fish caught in encircling nets, small and juvenile demersal fish caught in traps, and lobsters and octopus, and to a lesser extent, tuna.
