Opening of lobster fishing season

The local lobster fishing season for this season is as from 1st December, 2015 to 29th February, 2016 for a period of three months so as to evaluate how the stocks respond to the fishing pressure, after a closed season in 2014 aimed at allowing the stocks to replenish.

To maintain a sustainable stock, only 16 licenses are being issued this year; with 10 being allocated to lobster fishermen on the main island of Mahé, 4 to fishermen on Praslin and 2 for those on La Digue. To ensure that the Lobster fishermen comply to providing SFA with the required data, a compliance bond of Rs 5000 Seychelles rupees has to be paid by everyone issued with a license. Lobster fishing during the off-season or without a license during the open season is illegal, and anyone caught doing so will be liable to pay a fine of Rs10, 000 Seychelles rupees.
