Nampula: PR Announces New Fishing Port in Angoche For July This Year

The Mozambican President, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, announced the construction of a new fishing port in Angoche, scheduled to be inaugurated next July. The announcement was made this Saturday, 25 May, during the inauguration of the Fish Market in the tourist area of Chocas Mar, in Mossuril, as reported by the newspaper O País.

According to the information, this new harbour will be a multi-purpose facility that will initially serve to support fishing activity, but which, in the long term, could expand its functions to include the export of other products, including minerals. ‘The first phase of the port will have a significant impact, covering Sofala Bay, Pebane and Moma, facilitating the loading and unloading of fish for the major ports,’ explained President Nyusi.

The construction of the Port of Angoche will be accompanied by the Angoche-Nametil road, a stretch of approximately 100 kilometres that is currently under construction and will provide a direct land link between Angoche and the city of Nampula.

Manuel Rodrigues, the governor of that province, emphasised the importance of these infrastructures for the development of the region. ‘The construction of the fishing harbour and the paving of the road represent a significant milestone that will boost development and strengthen the fishing production chain in the region,’ he said.

The province of Nampula, with ten districts along its 2770 kilometres of coastline, will benefit from these new infrastructures. In 2023, the Ministry of the Sea, Inland Waters and Fisheries revealed that more than 1.2 billion meticals (20 million dollars) would be needed to build a fishing harbour in the province.

With these initiatives, Angoche is expected to become a centre for fishing and commercial development, promoting economic growth and improving living conditions in the region, he added.
