Seychelles has developed a Blue Economy roadmap, which defines how Seychelles will make maximum use of its 1.358 million square kilometres of ocean in the most sustainable manner possible. This comprehensive roadmap covers the whole spectrum of potential resources from oil exploration, to aquaculture, sustainable fishing and even eco-tourism. Renowned internationally for its success in the Blue Economy in Africa, Seychelles inspires many of its counterparts in the region to follow the same agenda. Sustainability is central to the success of the Blue Economy concept and this has multi-sectorial implications.
To better coordinate the approach of the Blue Economy concept, the Department of the Blue Economy was established in 2015 and it has been promoting the sustainable use of marine resources as well as coordinating its approach for the usage of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Any business activity within the EEZ will be developed according to the Seychelles Marine Spatial Plan and will have to reflect sustainable use of marine resources.
