Project Development Objective (PDO): To support the sustainable management of Ghana fish and aquatic resources by: (i) strengthening the country’s capacity to sustainably govern and manage the fisheries; (ii) reducing illegal fishing; (iii) increasing the value and profitability generated by the fish resources and the proportion of that value captured by the country; and (iv) developing aquaculture.
There are a number of ways to measure fishing capacity for different types of fishing vessels. One measure that is readily available in Ghana to provide baseline data is the number of different types of fishing vessels. Other dimensions of fishing capacity such as vessel horsepower and types of fishing will also be considered and incorporated into project monitoring during the course of implementation.
