Jaffer Bhimji was a fish trader in the Omani-run port of Gwader in Baluchistan.

The Imperial Gazetteer of India” (Calcutta, 1908, p. 186) writes that Gwadar was an open roadstead and port in Makran, about 290 miles from Karachi, with a population of 4350 persons in 1903. It is also learnt from the Ismaili journals of Bombay that the population of the Ismailis in Gwadar was about 500 around 1905.

He later moved to bustling British port-city of Karachi, where he was reputed to have supplied "sole" fish to the Ismaili Imam, Sir Sultan Mohamed Shah, Agakhan III at his home in Tekri, Karachi.
