Fishing: Fewer Fish in Our Lagoons

8 years, 6 months ago - November 20, 2013
Fishing in our lagoons reached a level of saturation, it is increasingly difficult for the fishermen to make good catches.

Statistics from the Ministry of Fisheries show that the volume of fish caught fell from 242 tons in five years. The figures speak for themselves. 745 tonnes of fish caught in 2012 against 947 tonnes in 2005. This is the reason why the Ministry of Fisheries wants to encourage fishermen to turn to aquaculture, "an industry of the future."

Responding to an inquiry by Jean-Claude Barbier, Tuesday, Nicolas Von Mally said his ministry distributes over fishing maps. Where a fall in the number of fishermen in five years. Between 2008 and 2012, the number of fishermen has increased from 2 307 to 2 160 Maurice and 1891 à 1236 fishermen in Rodrigues.

The aquaculture industry seems to attract lust. According to the official documents of the Ministry of Fisheries, 42 developers have expressed their interest to engage in aquaculture projects. September promoters wishing to embark on the 'large scale fish farming project': Wide Open Marine Catfish (SA) Ltd, AkwaCirne Group Ltd, A-Kwatale Farms Ltd., Gamma Civic Ltd. Biosys Consulting Pty Ltd and Barramundi Mainstream. 35 other developers, mostly fishermen associations or cooperatives, eyeing towards the 'small scale fish farms producing projects'. There including Lyons Cooperative Federation, Fishermen's Association Bamboo Virieux and Our Lady of Banneaux Fishermen Cooperative Society Ltd.

Missing fishermen Rs 800,000 compensation to families

14 fishermen were killed in the line of duty during the past five years. The Ministry of Fisheries offset four families. The rate of compensation for family of missing stood at Rs 200,000. So the total Rs 800,000 that were disbursed by the authorities since 2008.

Statistics show that 2010 is the year that has seen the largest number of fishermen lost at sea, six. They perished at sea on April 12, May 4, 25 and 27 September, November 7 and December 29. During the year 2012, there are four fishermen who disappeared at sea on 14 January, 6 February, 22 June and 16 November. The 10 families who have not yet received their compensation should take their troubles patiently, because of the cumbersome legal procedures of declaration of absence.
