Fishing in Fuerteventura


Fishing in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura has a very long coastline and an abundance of fish around its shores. This makes it an ideal place for angling, whether it be a serious attempt to catch a whopper like the one on the photo, which weighs in at 200kg, or a relaxing couple of hours of amusement. 

Fuerteventura offers game fishing for species such as Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Swordfish, Longbill Spearfish, Albacore Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna Wahoo, Dorado, Atlantic Bonito, Sting Ray, and Mako Shark. The best time of year for deep-sea fishing is between April and November, with October being the best month.

Closer to the shore, fish such as Barracuda and Garfish can be caught with a spinner, but Parrot Fish seem to be the favourite target of local Anglers who use small live crabs as a lure.

A permit is required to fish in Fuerteventura and this licence can be obtained from the Cabildo at the following address:

Consejeria de Agricultura, Ganaderia y Pesca
Calle Lucha Canaria, 112
Puerto del Rosario
Tel: (+34) 928 53 12 03

Sport fishing is subject to the following restrictions:
No more than 3 hooks or 2 Rods can be used by any one person at a time.
Maximum catch of 4kg of fish per person per day. Groups of 4 or more are limited to a maximum catch of 16kg per day.
