Fishing License

Fishing permits are required for vessels longer than 12m or more than 6 Gross Registered Tonnage (GRT), or deploy more than 4 troll lines. In practice, as most of the boats are smaller, fishing licences are very few. Fishing with drag nets, spears, harpoons, quinaldine, and explosives is prohibited.

Gillnets: ares not permitted where the water depth is less than 60 metres.

Reda di masbangu: is permitted where the owner has a permit issued by the Ministry of Health, Environment and Nature. (GMN)
