Title: Illegal Fishing in Seychelles
ASFA Terms: Illegal fishing
Issue Date: 2001
Publisher: ICSF/ IOI
Citation: Forging Unity Coastal Communities and the Indian Ocean’s Future. Conference Organized at IIT Madras, Chennai, India, 9 – 13 October 2001
Abstract: Seychelles has extensive pelagic resources and other specific species such as sharks, demersal species, tow spotted red snappers, green job fish, spankled emperor and grouper, etc., not to mention an abundance of sea cucumbers that are not yet exploited. With an EEZ of 1.4 million sq km making the ocean surface 3019 times larger than the land area, it is not surprising that other foreign fishing vessels engage in illegal fishing in Seychelles’ territorial waters, due to the absence of a relevant monitoring, control or surveillance unit.
