Set up fish processing plants for adding value to main fish caught within Seychelles' Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), including tuna and demersal species such as snappers, and by-catch such as mahi mahi and marlins. Produce high-demand sashimi, loins, smoked products, fillets, and chilled products for export to the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the European Union (EU), and sell products in the local and regional market, to hotels and through fish exchanges. Develop circular economy models to produce omega oil, animal feed inputs or fertilizers from fish processing waste.
Increase value addition from fisheries, enhance industrial capacity and export volumes and improve employment opportunities.
