South Africa and Maldives sign fisheries agreement

23 August 2017

South Africa and the Maldives will work together to improve the livelihood of their fishing communities and the management of tuna fisheries in the Indian Ocean.  

The commitment was made during a high level meeting of Fisheries Ministers held recently at the Bandos Island Resort, Malé.

Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Senzeni Zokwana attended a high level meeting of the G16 Group of like-minded Indian Ocean Coastal States' Fisheries Ministers, hosted by the Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture of the Maldives.

During the high level meeting, South Africa formalised its relationship with the Government of the Republic of Maldives by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The MoU is voluntary and commits the two countries to work together to improve the livelihood of their fishing communities and improve the management of tuna and tuna fisheries in the Indian Ocean. It commits the two countries to work together towards improving compliance with the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) and South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Commission (SWIOFC), and to improve social and community resilience for the conservation and management measures taken by the IOTC and SWIOFC.
