Regional survey of inland fisheries in the UEMOA


Date: 13/05/2014


UEMOA (Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine; West African Economic and Monetary Union) with the help of the consortium led by the IRD, France, has compiled the results of a regional survey on inland fisheries in eight member states and made them accessible via an online web atlas. This portal offers up-to-date documentation and statistics on inland fisheries capacity, exploitation, services and value chains for each one of the countries. Reviews, data and national and regional analysis on the topic of inland fisheries and aquaculture can also be downloaded from the website. Statistical data especially is useful for decision makers looking to compare and learn from the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in neighbouring countries.
