Mauritius is a subtropical island country in the Indian Ocean surrounded by a vast Exclusive Economic Zone of 2.3 million square kilometers. The Mauritius blue economy activities excluding coastal tourism represent 10% of the Growth Domestic Product (GDP) and employ around 7,000 people.
The Mauritius blue economy is currently represented by coastal tourism, fishing, seafood processing and seaport activities that are also considered traditional ocean activities. The Government aims at increasing the share of GDP of the blue economy to 20% in the medium term.
The strategy would be to work on the consolidation of traditional activities but also develop emerging ones such as aquaculture, maritime services, marine biotechnology, and oil & gas exploration.
