Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Mauritius
Mauritius is one of the world's biggest game fishing destinations, and the abundance of large Blue Marlin in the area is testament to that fact. The fact that the largest Blue Marlin caught there weighed 1430 lb ('Boating' Magazine, Jul-Aug 1988, p. 150) says a lot for the prevalence of large fish in the area. The large drop off near Le Mourne suits Blue Marlins' preference for deep seas while attracting them relatively close to the shore, and Blue Marlins tend to be caught off the island every day in high season.
- Marlin (Blue) fishing in Mauritius varies moderately throughout the year. High season is January and November to December. Low season is May to September. There is no closed season.
