Commercial Fishing Agency

Having been involved from the beginning in the exploratory voyages by the first French fishing vessels to fish commercially in Seychelles EEZ, Hunt Deltel has offered offshore and administrative support to ship owners since its inception.

As well as supporting fishing vessels, we are also the agency for reefer vessels calling to Port Victoria to load tuna for onward shipment to the world's canning factories.

Our multi-lingual shipping assistants ensure ship owners' representatives receive all the support they require, such as organizing bunkering, crew transfers, local crew recruitment and cargo trans-shipments. 

Housed within Hunt, Deltel's Fleet Logistics Centre since 2014, our Commercial Fishing Agency and its clients benefit from the comfort and convenience of our state-of-the art facility within which they have a dedicated office and the option of safeguarding ship stores within secure closed storage and easy access to the wide range of port services we offer in-house, supported by a transport fleet of 27 vehicles.


Our in-house stevedoring operations in the Fishing Port run seven days a week including public holidays. 

We are the proud record-holders of the most productive stevedoring shift in the port, set in 2008 , and our managers remain as passionate as ever since this department opened in 1994.

Our stevedores handle over 160,000 MT of tuna annually and provide our clients with a variety of services: fish sorting, transhipment from fishing vessel to reefer vessels, trimming within the storage wells of the reefer vessels, maintenance of storage wells, direct discharge to the Indian Ocean canning factory as well as reefer container stuffing with the aid of fish loader machinery.
