A long-standing demand of the women of fishing communities in the region has been towards enhancing regional fish trade. It is against this background that the Workshop on Problems and Prospects for Developing  Artisanal Fish Trade in West Africa was organized from 30 May to 1 June 2001,  followed by the West African Processed Fish Fair on 2 and 3 June 2001. These events were organized by ICSF in collaboration with the Collectif National des Pecheurs  Artisanaux du Senegal (CNPS) and the Centre de Recherches pour le Developpement  des Technologies Intermediaires de Pêche (CREDETIP). They were supported by the FAO-DFID Sustainable Fisheries Livelihood Project (SFLP).
