So what’s the problem?

What can we do?

The lack of solid and regional fisheries management in West Africa leaves loopholes for European fleets to continue to deplete West African oceans. At the same time, China’s distant water fleets operating in West Africa are repeating the same catastrophic mistakes that have left their own waters empty.

Over the years, Greenpeace Africa exposed illegal fishing in West African waters. We worked with governments to reinforce capacity to better surveille their oceans. We know what must be done. It’s time to scale up support, and call for an effective, transparent and more sustainable regional fisheries management system in West Africa.
