Sustainable Management of Fish Resources - under the Strategic Partnership for a Sustainable Fisheries Investment Fund in the Large Marine Ecosystems of Sub-Saharan Africa

The fisheries sector in Senegal has experienced an uncontrolled expansion of the number of fishers, boats and gear, leading to an overexploitation of the resource base, with severe implications on food security and economic growth. The objective of the proposed project is to empower local fisher communities to co- manage coastal fisheries resources and to conserve and protect the key habitats that support these resources.
