The front cover of the inaugural issue of Sea Life Seychelles

The magazine, named Sea Life Seychelles, is promoted by Ace Media in Seychelles and its editor is Arnold Chetty.

In his editorial for the first issue, Mr Chetty writes: “The primary purpose of the magazine is to educate Seychellois and visitors alike on the rich marine resources of Seychelles and the life giving characteristics of the vast seas that surround Seychelles.

“Visitors to these islands are overwhelmed by the richness of the Indian Ocean and the wide range of recreational activities it provides. Regardless of age, there is something for everyone to engage in. From snorkeling to deep sea diving, boat tours or sailing or better still deep sea fishing there are organised activities for all your sea-based leisure cravings”.

In his message published in this first edition, Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) chief executive Alain St Ange said “it is always a joy each time a new local publication hits the news stand.”
 
“And when a publication such as Sea Life Seychelles is launched, and is all about the Seychelles islands’ greatest asset – our marine environment – this is even more significant. At a time when the STB is doubling its efforts to give added value to the Seychelles brand of tourism, both here and overseas, publications of this nature truly complement our task.
 
Our marketing effort to bring visitors to our shores is half done job. When visitors hit our shores, we need to ensure that their customer experience is great and that they are well versed on all local offerings so that they can sample what Seychelles is about,” added Mr St Ange.

In this inaugural issue of Sea Life Seychelles, there is also an article by Marc Houareau, one of Seychelles’ best known fishing enthusiasts. His article entitled ‘Sport Fishing in Seychelles’ covers the sport of fishing in Seychelles.

“One does not have to venture far from the shores to break fishing records in the Seychelles archipelago,” says Mr Houareau. And he goes on to reaffirm that Seychelles has some of the richest fishing grounds in the world.

Other articles in this issue cover the Seychelles Festival of the Sea, reports of big game fishing tournaments, an excursion and a live aboard ‘The Great Escape’ of Mr Sindu Parekh, and more.
