Ivory coast fishing

epa05306519 An Ivorian fisherman prepares his fishing nets on a boat in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, 14 May 2016. Reports state that heavy fishing by international companies has put great pressure on traditional fishing communities. Marked as one of the main causes of the lack of fish in West African waters - deals that were struck during the last 50 years between the West African countries and countries with governments of largest fishing fleets from Europe and Asia. These offers have benefited the West African governments financially but not the people they govern. Foreign countries with fertile fishing grounds have been accused of over-exploitation of resources and ultimately deplete fishing stocks once the livelihoods of artisanal fishers. Often, in the communities of traditional fishermen, fish are an important source of food, and fishing is a way of life and the basis for the local cultures. As fish populations decline, stocks move offshore, making them inaccessible to small scale artisanal fishermen who do not have the equipment to access stocks. EPA/LEGNAN KOULA
