EU fleet lands 4-year tuna deal

01 May 2017

A new agreement to allow EU tuna fishing vessels to fish in Mauritian waters for a period of 4 years was signed last week.

The deal was part of the Protocol to the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Mauritius, and provides for a financial contribution of €575,000 per year to the latter, as well as an increased contribution to be paid by vessel-owners.

For the first time, it also includes specific provisions and financial incentives to support the development of the Ocean Economy in Mauritius as a contribution to its economic growth, thus broadening the scope of the relations between the EU and Mauritius in the field of fisheries and maritime economy. This protocol will come into force in the coming months, after the completion of adoption procedures on both sides.
