The traditional seine fishing in the lagoons of Mauritius, which took over in early March between 6 o'clock and 18 o'clock depending on the tides, will be extended this year for maritime professionals over a period of ten days of additional activity.
 
Fishermen will be able to use their nets from 1 to 10 October 2014.
 
The winter season has thus been marked by high anticyclones and strong swells that have forced fishing boats to stay in port.
 
As a reminder, seine fishing is done in teams. Fishermen who practice it have joined forces cooperatives.
 
Each fishery is made up of ten people and has the right to use 500 meters of nets, according to the laws in force in Mauritius.
 
Two types of nets are used for fishing seine: first is thrown on sandy bottoms to take fish and a second, called "lasenn canard", made of bamboo pieces and drift to capture mullets.
