In 2000, commercial fishery production was 39,065 tons, of which lobsters and prawns were primarily for export. The potential catch is estimated at 500,000 tons of fish and 14,000 tons of prawns. South African trawlers are allowed to fish in Mozambican waters in return for providing a portion of their catch to Mozambique. In 2000, exports of shrimp and other seafood were valued at $103.5 million. The European Community, Italy, and Japan have each entered into agreements designed to help develop the fishing industry.
