About Us

“Environmentally friendly sustainable fishing with full traceability from ocean to plate”.

This is what JLR Fisheries is all about.

Since 1848 the Raffaut family has fished the pristine waters around Rodrigues Island, in the Indian Ocean. Since that time many things have changed, however, the philosophy of our business holds as true today as it did over 150 years ago which is to deliver the highest quality seafood to a person’s plate in a sustainable manner.

JLR Fisheries is incorporated in Rodrigues, a 100 Square Km Island at 350 nautical miles east of Mauritius which is known for its rich fishing grounds free from industrialisation and modern agriculture.

“Our fishing ground is one of the richest in the world”

and include the Mauritius Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) which is more than 1.9 million Square Km extending from the coasts of the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, St Brandon (Cargados Carajos Shoals), Agalega and Tromelin.

Our company harvests, processes, exports and supplies locally tropical fresh fish products from both pelagic and demersal fish species. These include Swordfish, Yellowfin and Albacore Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sea Bream, Red Snapper and Grouper. There is a high demand and available market for all these products, particularly for certified sustainable fish which JLR Fisheries can deliver.

“We fish in accordance to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) guidelines.”

We are in the process of registering for FDA and EU approval and operate from the our own port at Pointe Monier Rodrigues and Mauritius Freeport Zone which are maintained to the highest standards. Our vessels and our processing plant are working towards full compliance with the HACCP, FDA and EU certification.

Today, our customers span the globe, from local customers to those overseas. Our export markets include the European Union, the Gulf Region, the USA and Asia.
