Seychelles women thrive in male-dominated industry
Julie Matatiken is the Senior Laboratory Technician at SOCOMEP, an enterprise that provides services for the Seychelles’ largest industry – industrial tuna fishing. SOCOMEP stands out for its inclusion of women across all areas of the company’s work, including its managerial and scientific units. Julie works on site in Port Victoria both on the tuna fishing vessels, taking samples from fish in the ships' holds, and at SOCOMEP's laboratory performing histamine and salt and organoleptic analysis on the samples.
