Discover the Fish of Morocco's Waters

Species by Country and Family Fishes of  Morocco 658 Species

Morocco is known for having the richest fish territory in the Atlantic Ocean. Over and above the ocean, the landscape is littered with rivers, streams and lakes that also attract many visitors to fishing in Morocco

Moroccan coasts are fringed in the North by the Mediterranean Sea and the West by the Atlantic Ocean. The continental shelf is characterised by the presence of up-welling, which makes the coastal waters extremely rich in nutritive salts and high biological productivity; and by the wind driving water away from the coasts so that it may be replaced by richer waters from deeper down. The rich feeding grounds create potential for fishing stress and competition is the area for both pelagic and demersal resources.
