Prawn Fisheries


- N/A

The fisheries sector in Mozambique accounts for about 4% of GDP and 28% of foreign exchange earnings. It is estimated that the population derive 50% of their animal protein intake from fish and fish products (current per capita consumption of fish at 6.9 kg per annum). This figure is significantly increased along the coastal zone where fishing communities rely mostly on daily fish catch for subsistence and animal protein input. The sector provides employment to over 100,000 people as primary activity, and over more than three to four times this number in supporting services.
