Angola - Fishing



Fresh fish, fish meal, dried fish, and fish oil are produced for the domestic market and for export. During 1975–76, some of the processing plants were destroyed, and most of the modern fishing boats departed with refugees. In 2000, the Angolan catch was 238,351 tons (up from 122,781 tons in 1995), 97% from marine fishing. Exports of fish products in 2000 totaled $10.8 million. Some of the Spanish, Japanese, and Italian vessels fishing under license also pay in kind. About 22% of the 2000 catch consisted of cunene horse mackerel.
