The Artisanal Fisheries Development Project (PDPAS) Phase II is designed because of the difficulties encountered by the sector, in particular the lack of appropriate training for small-scale fishing, the organization of the sectors, and the appropriate financing of production activities. It’s therefore necessary to safeguard the human and material resources provided in the first phase, and carry on the initiated activities in accordance with the development objectives set by the Government. The project intends to train 1,230 apprentice fishermen, provide further training to 675 sea fishermen and train 500 women in fish processing techniques and marketing. It should allow for the additional production of 10,500 tonnes of fish, enable fishermen to settle on the sites and contribute to marine environmental protection, as well as establish a credit fund for the trained fishermen and women. To do this, it should: (i) renovate the two existing training centres in Blawakh and PK 28; (ii) construct a new training centre and create a development pole in PK 144, and (iii) construct a further training centre and project headquarters in Nouakchott. The main components of the project are: A) Training and further training of artisanal fishermen; B) Creation of a development pole; C) Support for artisanal fisheries operators; D) Resource management and environmental activities; and E) Improvement of project management.
The artisanal fisheries development project Phase II aims at increasing artisanal fish production and the incomes of the beneficiary population.
The main beneficiaries of PDPAS II are, first of all, artisanal fishers (around 2000) settled in the project area, women processors of trained fish and women involved in the processing of fishery products. The other beneficiaries are women fish sellers, and the entire population of the country through media programs to promote the consumption of fish to improve the health, nutritional and food situation of households.
