Background

The economy of the Maldives revolves around two things, which are tourism and fishing. On a deep sea fishing expedition you get to experience the two areas in which the country excels in the most. More than thirty percent of the nation’s population work in the fishing industry.

Fishing Restrictions

Due to the insurmountable significance of fishing to the nation’s industry, there are very strict regulations when it comes to fishing. It is absolutely prohibited to fish at protected reefs and violators to this rule can be fined anywhere from $500 to $2000. Capturing any form of shark is strictly prohibited in the Maldives, as is the use of nets and explosives.

Deep Sea Fishing

Due to these regulations, deep-sea fishing is one of the safest ways to indulge in this activity. This involves the use of a vessel with experienced personnel taking you on a miniature voyage from the restricted fishing zones.

How to Procure an Expedition

Since many tourists seek such an experience while on their holidays in the Maldives there are many entities such as Maldives Resorts Club that can aid you in procuring your very own deep sea fishing expedition.
