dmg tanzania marine division



Marine Division was established in early 2017 with a motive of conquering Marine Sector in Tanzania. The establishment of this division is a conscious response to the challenges that are facing the Marine Sector in both Shipbuilding and Fisheries ranging from poor infrastructural development, inadequate human resource, poor technology, poor vessels, poor fishing gears, disorganized fish market and low technical knowledge of fisheries projects operation etc.

Dar es Salaam Merchant Group aspires to transform the Marine sector by integrating Shipbuilding and Fisheries. We have in-house experts in both Shipbuilding and fisheries, we work with local and international reputable partners.
