Skipjack tuna in water with a touch of seasalt

This is skipjack tuna in its purest form. Not only because the fish is caught in a traditional way, with a pole and line, but also because we only added water and a sprinkle of sea salt. This makes you taste the purest flavor of the fish with every single bite.

Origin

Maandhoo has the same white sandy beaches and palm trees like the bounty islands that the Maldives are known for. But expensive resorts, golf courses or honeymooners can’t be found here, because Maandhoo is all about fish. Tuna fish to be more exact. This is home to our skipjack tuna.

Fishing method

The tuna fishermen from Maandhoo fish with pole & line. One by one, fish by fish. When it’s time, the fishermen all stand on the back of the boat with their rod. Each caught tuna is swung to the back.

The tuna fish is caught by putting the net over the full width of the boat. The good thing about this traditional method is that they only catch real tuna. There’s no by-catch nor environmental damage - and because many fishermen are needed for this method, it creates jobs and provides for the small coastal communities.
