— Fishing —

The fishing industry in Maldives is the main contributor to the Maldivian economy; visitors to the islands could try their hand at fishing the traditional way. The traditional method of fishing is called the pole and line method a feathered barb-less hook on a line is attached to 15 foot Bamboo or plastic construction pole. Anglers could catch fish weighing up to 50 pounds using this technique. However if visitors are not keen on trying the traditional method they could bring their own equipment or rent it from the resort.

Night time fishing is the most desired type of fishing in Maldives; anglers could feel the gentle breeze and the lapping of the choppy waters as they wait for an unsuspecting fish to bite on the bait. With a vast amount of patience and a little bit of luck anglers could catch tuna, squirrelfish, groupers, barracuda, emperors, rainbow runner and tre-val-ly. Fishing in the Maldivian seas does not require one to be an expert angler; however visitors need to be aware of the fishing norms in the Maldives.
