Deep Sea Fishing in Mauritius
About Deep Sea Fishing in Mauritius
Mauritius is known for being one the best fishing destinations worldwide. Its optimum location, perfect sea conditions and weather, make it a hub for several migratory-fish species. The sheltered reefs attract plenty of small fish and squid which in turn attract larger, predatory fish including barracuda, sailfish, tuna and giant marlins, among many others.
The island holds and has previously held several world fishing records, endorsed by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), including that of a 1115-pound Mako Shark and a 400-pound Blue Shark. The Mauritian record for a Pacific Blue Marlin is at 1355 pounds- just a few pounds short of the world record and leaving plenty of room for a new one to be set. The famed Blue Marlin’s enormous size and legendary fighting ability makes it one of the most highly targeted gamefish in the world.
