The fishing industry has expanded in recent years, and a new cannery has increased tuna exports. The fish catch in 2000 was estimated at 36,600 tons, over 20% of which was tuna. Barracuda, snapper, grouper, mackerel, and mullet are other principal species caught. In the early 1980s, several new fish farms began to produce carp, prawns, oysters, eels, and mussels. In 2000, prepared and preserved fish exports were valued at $34.2 million.
