FISHING IN THE MALTESE ISLANDS – PAST & PRESENT

The Maltese Islands situated in the middle of the Mediterranean are becoming a hot spot for sport fishing enthusiasts. Since ancient times the locals have ventured out at sea in order to be able to survive and sustain their families since the sea was one of the few recourses that these Islands offered till some time ago. In fact the two main resources in old days were agriculture and fishing itself. Nowadays one can still notice the many fishing villages scattered around Malta and Gozo in memory of those hard days when the survival of families where in the hands of those that risked their lives out at sea with traditional wooden boats, called “Luzzu”, and guided only by a compass at the best of times.

Modern safety and navigation instrumentation has only been around for a few decades and are nowadays compulsory for most vessels.

It is also a new trend in the Maltese Islands to consider fishing as a sport. In fact due to our history and culture, fishing was always considered as a substitute to the every day bread and fishing itself was no fun at all, but just another way how to survive. Obviously times change and even though there are still full-time and part-time fishermen, it is becoming more and more one of those jobs that nobody really wants to do any more.

Nowadays fishing has become more another way how to get away from the everyday life, away from the office, from the traffic jams and mobiles, just to relax for some time out in the fresh air and enjoy the thrill of a day out fishing.
