Dr. Shah sounds the alarm on distant water fishing nations attempting, what some have called, a new form of colonisation by claiming that 85 per cent of all future tuna catch in our exclusive economic zone should be theirs based on their history of fishing in our waters. He led the Seychelles delegation, which included private sector representatives, to the 22nd Indian Ocean Tuna Commission session last month, and has been fighting hard ever since. “The government has taken the right, and brave, stand, in my opinion, but I would also like the Seychelles public to understand the dire situation here,” he stresses in this interview.
