Ministers of Natural Resources is conducting a three island
survey including Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, to assess domestic
consumption of fish.
This move is anticipated to be the foundation work which
will lead to an eventual ban on fish export from Seychelles overseas.
The market expected to be most affected is the Russian, Moscow
market serviced by Oceana Fisheries.
UAE market will be affected as well.
Fishermen who have been reaping huge profits will not appreciate
the bans when put in place.
Also those ordering boats in Sri Lanka and PRC will soon find
out that the domestic market may not help them pay back their loans. Nearly one hundred boats are reportedly being built in Sri Lanka. That venture will be put to a stop with a ban on exports. End
