Fish Programme to Get Support

RWANDA - Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Co-operation (CTA) will support the Nepad fish programme.

Fisheries and aquaculture are regarded critical for the food security of more than 200-million people in Africa. The sector also provides incomes for over 10-million families engaged in fishing, processing and marketing.

According to All Africa.com a statement from Nepad Secretariat says that the fisheries sector is developing rapidly. And aquaculture growing exponentially in a number of countries and fisheries changing their production and marketing strategies. This is in response to the rising demand for fish and new constraints in resource access and productivity. However Nepad hastens to say: "In spite of its importance and the highly visible changes, there is little understanding of how information in the sector is generated and exchanged."
