Dehai -- Shabait.com: Eritrea’s Fishing Treasures: Unexploited Opportunities

17 Jul 2021  |  dehai.org
The article discusses the development of Eritrea's fishing sector since the establishment of a government body to oversee maritime activities in 1991. Despite the potential to harvest 60-80,000 tons of fish annually, Eritrea's actual catch has been much lower, with only 13,000 tons reported in 2000. The College of Marine Sciences and Technology suggests that 25,000 tons per year could significantly contribute to food security. The sector has received support from the United Nations, the Government of Japan, and the establishment of national fishing companies. However, challenges remain, including the need for better training, more advanced fishing methods, and combating illegal fishing by neighboring countries. The Eritrean Naval Forces require better resources to patrol the waters effectively. The article emphasizes the importance of the fishing sector for Eritrea's food security and economic development.
