Cape Verde Deep Sea Fishing

For most Cape Verdeans the ocean isolates their islands from a mainstream of world events and loved ones forced by economic circumstance to migrate to distant lands. Despite clean waters and sandy beaches everywhere, most Cape Verdeans do not swim. For Cape Verde's artisanal fishermen, though, the sea is not a barrier but a highway between islands scattered across almost 630,000 square kilometers of ocean. The fishermen who work the coastal areas of these waters are referred to as "artisanal" because their success depends on their mastery of the art and craft of fishing. Those fishermen who own their own small boats can make a living relatively free from the regulations and the bureaucracy created by the people of the land. The artisanal fishing fleet consists of about 1,400 boats between 4 and 8 meters in length and about 1.6 meters in width. Most of these boats are based in Santiago (50%) and Sao Vicente (10%). About 50% are motorized. Learning to fish for a living on these boats is a traditional rite of passage through which some boys pass on the road to becoming men.

There are about two dozen small fishing villages around Cape Verde and more than sixty other landing sites dotting around the coastline. Names like Tarrafal, Pedra Badejo, Salamanca, Faja d'Agua, and Santa Maria. Now that international tourism is beginning to come to Cape Verde, many fishermen are amused to see their faces on post cards and in European travel agents' brochures.

There is a wealth of richness of all kinds of fish at Cape Verde, the ocean surrounding the Islands provides a wealth and richness of all kinds marine life.
