Discover Fishing Mauritius

Line fishing is an art primarily practiced by the inhabitants of Mauritius since it's not something that has really been developed as a tourist activity. You'll certainly see them palangrotte fishing off all of the island's coasts. This resource, of course, provides the natives with a source of food and enables tourists to sample some exquisite fish, such as the spearfish, the sea bream and the emperor, but deep-sea fishing has become far more widespread where tourism is concerned. In fact, lots of the hotels, as well as other companies on the island, offer this activity.
