Director-General (DG) of the Ministry of Fisheries is in Seychelles representing Somalia in an ongoing conference that kicked off in the East African Nation.

The objective of the conference is to find sustainable solutions for safeguarding the diminishing stocks of tuna fish in the Indian ocean.
In Somalia, Tuna fishing season is guided by monsoon winds that usually occur mostly between May and September. This is the high season for commercial tuna fishing.
Somalia’s waters are some of the world’s most productive with countless species of commercially valuable fish including Tuna.
The domestic fishing sector in the Horn if Africa Nation annually contributes about $135 million to the economy.
