Unrivalled Seychelles fishing expertise, TOP-OF-THE-LINE VESSELS and sustainable CATCH-AND-RELEASE practices: A1 is the responsible choice for EXPERIENCED ANGLERS and NOVICE FISHERMEN alike.
As seriously as we take our fishing, we’re equally stringent about protecting fish stocks and conserving the marine environment. Not only for future generations of fishermen, but also for Seychelles’ food security, an often overlooked risk given the islands’ isolation in the Indian Ocean.
We operate with a strict catch-and-release policy for billfish, and what we do keep is limited to those fish from sound stocks, for immediate consumption only.
We work closely with the Seychelles Sports Fishing Club (SSFC), and other conservation organisations, in all of our activities. We’re proud to be a founding participant in the SSFC’s tagging programme, so that every billfish we catch is tagged and immediately released back into the sea, and we proudly display our mast flags quayside to signify and promote our released catches.
A1 and the SSFC are proud partners of The Billfish Foundation (www.billfish.org), as well as the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) Great Marlin Race, a satellite tag programme that seeks to learn more about marlin movements throughout the ocean.
