Fishermen on Seychellois island, Praslin, embrace self-imposed limits to boost fish stock
An association of local fishermen from Praslin, the second-most populated island in Seychelles, has embraced a project that will help maintain the fish stock at one of the island’s bays, said the chairperson of the association.
Darell Green said the project aims to conserve part of the Baie St Anne by limiting fishing activities from taking place in that area for a period of time.
“The initiative will help maintain the fish stock in that area such that it will give ample time for the fish stock to grow,” he said.
Spearheaded by Praslin Fisher’s Association, the project is an example whereby fishermen take the initiative to develop sustainable fishing.
