Need some excitement in your life...? Try fishing from Mogadishu!

MOGADISHU Somalia -- Somalia has not only the longest coastline on the African mainland, but also some the the finest close to shore deep sea fishing.

Its rich waters provide local fishermen with an abundance seafood, which they in turn supply as the major source of food protein in the diet of fortunate Mogadishu and inland residents.

Prior to the start of the civil war in 1991, the country had a number of fishing hubs.

Tuna, lobster, and other high value marine stock were harvested locally for the domestic and international seafood markets.

The government has since endeavoured to work with local communities to rebuild the fisheries industry and normalize trade.
