RESULT 2

Strengthened capacity to prevent, deter and eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing in the EA-SA-IO region.

LEVERAGING sustainable fisheries to build the africa we want

In order to combat IUU fishing, which causes economic and environmental losses as well as insecurity for the EA-SA-IO region, a regional fisheries monitoring program was launched in 2007. This initiative aims to pool the existing resources of the coastal countries of the region, by carrying out targeted and dissuasive controls based on the analysis of fleets’ activities using data relevant to the scale of action of each fishery.

E€OFISH continues the implementation of this programme and works for:

The marine fisheries of the EA-SA-IO region
The shared fisheries of Lake
 Tanganyika
The shared fisheries of Lake
 Victoria
ABOUT US

E€OFISH strives to ensure the sustainable management of these assets by putting in place policies to handle them effectively,  by protecting them and by promoting good fishing practices.
