In line with the latest 5th National Development Plan of Namibia, Cavema Fishing (Pty) Ltd. is focusing on Value Addition and maximization of economic benefits from marine resources. All efforts support the aim and objectives of improving and increasing value addition in the horse mackerel sector of the economy. Despite the difficult task of creating further value from the horse mackerel resource, the company is working hard in terms of research and development with increased budget and effort focusing on the job at hand. Last but not least, Cavema Fishing (Pty) Ltd. contributes greatly to food security in Namibia and the region. The fact that the company produces and distributes more than 32,000 tons of frozen horse mackerel per year speaks for itself. The final product is one of the most affordable sources of protein in the region and feeds millions of people with scarce resources.

Over the past six years, the company has produced and distributed over 600 tons of second grade horse mackerel at affordable prices. Much of the distribution efforts are done via the Power Save outlet in Kuisebmond, Walvis Bay. Though affordable the product is fully fit for human consumption as certified by the Namibia Standard Institution (NSI).
In addition, the company does annual fish donations as part of their food security and social responsibility efforts.
