Surrounded by the beautiful Indian Ocean, it is no surprise that the fresh fish on Innahura is always very popular. With much of it caught locally and sold directly to the island, Innahura is able to guarantee the source, and fishing methods used to catch much of the fish that is served in the restaurants.
Fishing in the Maldives has a long history and is an integral part of the country’s culture. However, unlike in many parts of the world, the Maldives have managed to keep their fishing industry sustainable, with most fish, including tuna, caught by traditional pole and line methods. This method allows fisherman to easily release any fish hooked that are not of the correct size or species and does not risk leaving nets or long lines in the water, which can go on to damage other marine life.
So next time you’re visiting us on Innahura you can relax and enjoy some of the tasty local fish dishes or the fresh tuna steaks offered in Sand Bar, happy in the knowledge that it has been sustainably caught, and where possible, locally sourced. You could also join our expert crews on a private Game Fishing excursion or venture out at sunrise or sunset for a traditional Maldivian fishing experience.
