Maldives is one of the few countries that have banned trawling with net and long-line fishing. This allows the marine ecosystem a sustainable growth and abundance of fish. The healthy reefs harbor various game fish species that are popular such as Giant Trevally, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Sailfish and Marlin.
One of the most popular styles of fishing which is sure to give a good work out, jigging is at the same time rewarding. Most common catches are various Trevally jacks, Snappers, and groupers, and the trophy catches are the Yellowfin and the Dogtooth Tuna.

Pole & Line
“Pole and line” is a traditional fishing method, which is both socially and environmentally responsible. Requiring just one hook, one line and one fisherman, fish are caught one at a time. The result is a wide variety of environmental and socio-economic benefits, including high employment, zero bycatch and a more sustainable haul of tuna – one of the world’s most widely eaten fish.
