Baseline survey on socio-economic benefits of artisanal tuna fishery in Mozambique




Tuna is one of the most globally traded and consumed seafood. Due to the high demand for tuna and tuna-like species, the fishery is facing huge challenges with respect to sustainable exploitation across the globe. The Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region accounts for 70-80% of the Indian Ocean tuna catch, and about 20% of the global production. It is reported that Mozambican artisanal marine fishery contributes over 80% of the national marine fish production, being used as food or source of income to coastal fishing communities. However there is no adequate information on how much of this are tuna and or tuna-like species. The main aim of this assessment was to provide baseline information on socio-economic issues around artisanal tuna fishery
