Mozambique has no national fleet for tuna and tuna like species so tuna (Thunnus albacares, Thunnus obesus and T.alalunga) are caught by foreign fleet. However since 2011 a national flagged longliner started fishing in Mozambican coast. Catch composition showed that sixty percent of the catch was made up shark and the main species caught were Prionace glauca, Isurus oxyrinchus, Carcharinus sorrah , Squalus asper and Carcharinus leucas.
