The West African States are planning a joint strategy to develop the fishery sector

(Togo First) - Various representatives of the fishery sectors of ECOWAS member-States (directors of fishery and non-public actors), and Mauritania, gathered on October 9, 2019, to discuss the implementation of a joint policy for fishing and aquaculture in West Africa.

Organized by the ECOWAS Agriculture and Rural Development Directorate (DADR), the meeting falls under the Project to Improve Regional Governance of Fishery in West Africa (PESCAO); and aims to put in place "a framework for the 15 countries so that they agree on how to sustainably develop fishery and aquaculture in West Africa," said the head of Pescao project.

Let's note that the fishery sector employs about three million people in West Africa (more than 10% of the region's active population), with an annual output of 3 million tons.
In Togo, the sector contributes 4.5% of agricultural GDP.
