Fishing is one of the great attractions to the Maldives. Strict laws against non sustainable commercial fishing methods have helped these Atolls retain an abundance of marine life. Thulusdoo has a small number of diverse fishing boats targeting everything from large Marlin, Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna, along with smaller pelagic species such as Trevally, Barracuda and Rainbow runner. Night time fishing excursions target bottom feeding reef fish. Most of these species can be found within close proximity to the island.
