Our longline fishing operations are comprised of two fully functional business entities in two different regions, collectively consisting of 14 vessels – fishing throughout the year, ensuring exceptional supply continuity.
Afritex Fishing Ltd based in Port Louis, Mauritius and Pescamoz LDA, based in Beira, Mozambique. Afritex fishing is our first Longline fishing company with state of the art commercial packing and processing facility with our own fleet of vessels. Fishing in the nutrient rich waters of Mauritius, the primary focus is on the export of premium quality fresh Tuna, Swordfish and Mahi mahi by airfreight, as well as processing and value-added range of retail ready lines, consisting of Tuna, Swordfish, Mahi mahi and other associated by catch.
Pescamoz LDA is our second Longline fishing company conveniently based quay-side in the Port of Beira, Mozambique – through which we run our processing facility and manage our self-owned fleet of vessels. As is the case with our Afritex Mauritius operations, our primary focus is on the export of premium quality fresh Tuna, Swordfish and Mahi mahi, including our range of value-added retail lines from Tuna, Swordfish, Mahi mahi and other associated by catch.
Both our longline operations boast state of the art quay-side packing and processing facilities – holding EU, FDA and HACCP accreditation. All crew and staff members are fully trained and equipped with the required skill sets to handle fish on board the vessel and in the facility, ensuring only the best quality and freshness. Temperature control plays a vital part in the quality of fish. With our strict policies from when the fish is caught, stored on board the vessel, moved from the vessel to the packing and production facility, transportation to the airport / port and eventually to the client – our catch is temperature controlled and monitored every step of the way. Both facilities will have their own on-site ice plants, with the capacity to manufacture up to 25 metric tons of ice per day and store 60 metric tons of ice.
