Etosha Fishing Corporation, formerly known as the Walvis Bay Canning Company, pioneered
Namibia’s fishing industry in the 1940s with the country’s first fishmeal and canning plant. In 1995 the facilities were completely revitalised and today Etosha Fishing boasts one of the best round can production facilities
in the world.
Throughout its history the company has contributed to the dramatic increase in the utilisation of pilchards for human consumption. It is proudly associated with the Lucky Star
brand, the canned fish market leader in Southern Africa and well-known in many world markets, through a shareholding agreement with Oceana Group
Limited concluded in 2000.
Etosha Fishing more recently broke ground with its Efuta Maasbanker
product range, making available Namibia’s national fish, horse mackerel, in a can.
