About the Holiday Idea

Fishing in MaldivesFishing in the Maldives waters can be an adventure of a lifetime for keen fishermen and first-timers alike. The fish are plentiful and varied. Sailfish, huge tuna, wahoo, barracuda and jackfish are common. Nets are flung out whether with trap, seines, hand or trawl lines as fishing is the mainstay of the traditional island life. Outside the atolls massive tuna catches, sharks, marlin, sailfish, and the famous Maldive skipjack are easily netted. Traditionally Maldivians, as masters of the sea, used small dhonis and trawled outside the atoll enclosure reef. The methods of fishing vary depending on the type of fish that you want to catch and the time of the day that you prefer. Skipjack, dried and frozen is a famous Maldivian product known as "Maldive Fish" and is the main export of the country.
