Empowered Community Volunteers Gear Up to Assist in Fisheries Enforcement


Community Watchdog Volunteers from Ada and James Town have undergone a two-day training to enhance their capacities in land-based and sea borne patrols.

The training, which took place from 11th to 12th August, 2016, was facilitated by Macki Mario Maderazo, an expert from the model Bantay Dagat Programme of the Philippines and Laura Johansson of SFMP. 

These volunteers are expected to help in educating their communities on Ghanaian fisheries regulations in addition to assisting in detecting, collecting evidence, reporting illegal fishing activities.
