This work aims to investigate freshwater fish exploitation status in three Tunisian reservoirs: Siliana, Lahjar and Kasseb associated with the examination of progress in the zoo-sanitary registration. Three types of operators at these reservoirs were identified: a promoter, a fishery development group, and independent fishermen. The only operator who has all the required documents for the zoo-sanitary registration, is the promoter operating at Lahjar Reservoir. The SWOT analysis applied to Siliana, Lahjar and Kasseb reservoirs allowed us to highlight the differences between the three modes of exploitation and to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Along with these findings, the analysis revealed factors that may directly or indirectly affect the reservoirs and made it possible to elaborate new perspectives which would help improve the inland fish farming sector in Tunisia.
