The Advanced Artisanal Fisheries Development Project is designed to promote the development of advanced artisanal fisheries in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau. It is indispensable insofar as it should allow the development of a sector designated as one of the priorities of the second development plan. The project also aims to train 500 new artisanal fishermen. In addition, it should allow, through its component relating to the improvement of the knowledge of the fishery resources, to follow quantitatively and qualitatively the sampling on the marine stock and thus to give to the heads of the fishing sector the information necessary for an optimal management Resource. The components of the project are: (i) training of 1,700 fishermen and 5 crews of liners; (ii) support for the installation of fishermen; (iii) institutional strengthening of the State Secretariat for Fisheries; and (iv) improving knowledge of fisheries resources.
The objective of the project is to promote the development of advanced small-scale fishing in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau in order to create new jobs, develop the supply of the domestic market and increase exports of seafood products.
The beneficiaries of the project are fishermen, consumers of fishery products, young people (who will benefit from job creation) and the State Secretariat for Fisheries.
