Forty-one European boats received their industrial fishing license for this campaign. Most of them are Spanish and French, who are on board the ship fishing for the coveted tuna.

Fishing in the waters of Malagasy territories

The fleet of industrial fishing vessels consists of twenty-four tuna seiners, eleven longliners and six support vessels. Which subsequently reminds us that these vessels obtained their license following the fishing agreement between Madagascar and the European Union 2023.

According to the Ministry of Fisheries and the Blue Economy, all stakeholders were consulted in its development. This is the eleventh renewal of the fisheries agreement with the European Union.

As initially agreed, sixty-five vessels will thus be able to benefit from the tuna resource offered by Malagasy territorial waters. And thirty-three surface longliners will also be able to carry out their activity.

In return

Negotiations lasted four years before reaching this agreement. This fishing agreement lasts four years.

As such, the European Union will pay each year 1,8 million euros to the Malagasy State, whose 700 000 euros for access rights to fishing areas, for a benchmark not exceeding 14 000 tonnes per year. The rest, 1,1 million d’euros, will support sectoral fisheries policy. On the other hand, royalties from EU shipowners should represent 1,42 million euros per year.

They will also have to pay an environmental contribution based on their gross tonnage, estimated in total at 200 000 EUR. The government of the Big Island therefore intends to take advantage of the sector, by taking advantage of the limited period of passage of tuna in its territorial waters to generate a source of foreign currency.
