[ABNJ Tuna & Biodiversity] BioFAD Project in Ghana - Activity Report, September-November 2018

This study is part of a pilot project coordinated by the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation(ISSF), with support provided by the Common Oceans ABNJ Tuna Project , to test the use of biodegradable and non-entangling Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) in collaboration with Ghanaian fleets. The initiative addresses some of the challenges facing the fishing sector by implementing best practice solutions to reduce both ghost-fishing due to entanglement in FAD structure, and the amount of plastic used to construct FADĀ“s structures, with the aim to contribute to achieving responsible, efficient and sustainable fisheries and biodiversity conservation. The present document shows the activities conducted within the project from September 2018 to November 2018.
