Supporting the Economic Empowerment of the Artisanal Fishing Community of the Republic of Mauritius

Through a EUR 1 million grant the European Union (EU) will enable the artisanal fishers of the islands of Mauritius and Rodrigues to be more economically resilient. The project will:

1. Enable artisanal fishers to use best fishing practices for sustainable management of marine resources

2. Train artisanal fishers to operate environmentally-friendly post-harvest fish processing plant.

3. Encourage more artisanal fishers to apply EU norms for fish processing.

This project will improve and strengthen the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the artisanal fisher community in the Republic of Mauritius.
