Stakeholders call for efficient use of fishing technologies in Ghana – Citi Business News


Summary short_text

According to them, there's the need for sustainable management of the country's ecosystem as well as the improvement of the livelihoods of people living in and around communities in the wetlands and the promotion of efficient fishing technologies amongst Ghana's fish processors.
Speaking to Citi Business News on the sidelines of a workshop on the social protection coverage and financial inclusion amongst Ghanaian fisher folk, Director of CERATH Development Organisation, CDO, Paa Kofi Osei-Owusu, noted that the importance of small-scale fisheries to the food and nutrition security and the livelihoods of many people within the coastal areas cannot be overemphasized.
"As an organisation, we found out that, there is something that is missing within the fishing communities and one of them particularly, has to do with the adoption of improved technologies to reduce our cost of processing. So, mindful of that, we looked at a holistic approach where first and foremost there is an advocacy component. There is also a component on improved fish smoking technology and also social protection."
