Seafood & Aquaculture

The government’s plan to develop Mauritius as a world class seafood hub as part of its strategy to further strengthen the fishing industry and create a new thriving sector to sustain our economic development is well under way. This sector has enormous business potential due to the wide exclusive economic zone, port facilities and an attractive business environment.

Mauritius boasts modern logistics facilities including state-of-the-art cold rooms and processing units as well as fishing quays and other port related services. The further development of the Mauritian Seafood Industry focuses on processing of seafood like tuna for the local market and for export. Aquaculture and fishing has also great potential.
