IEO scientists collaborate in Equatorial Guinea’s fishery resource assessment September 14,2017   |  Source: FIS

Last August, the first survey to evaluate fishery resources in Equatorial Guinea waters was carried out in the framework of a project that the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has developed since 2014 to promote scientific knowledge of the country's fishery resources.

The 22-day survey has been carried out in Equatorial Guinea's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), covering the island of Bioko, the coastal region of the continent and the island of Annobon and has been carried out on board the oceanographic vessel Itaf Deme, belonging to the Centre for Oceanographic Research of Dakar-Thiaroye (CRODT) in Senegal.

The lack of fishery and biological information on commercial fishery resources in Equatorial Guinea gave rise to the project called Evaluation of Fishery Resources in Equatorial Guinea waters, managed by FAO and financed by the country's government.

The main objective of this project is to provide scientific information on fishery resources in Equatorial Guinea's EEZ in order to allow its maximum and sustainable use, promoting the development of fishing activities so as to ensure the supply of local markets with quality products and to be able to contribute to the food security of the population and decrease their dependence on fish
