Senegalese fish processor women hold a banner reading « Women United against Fishmeal » outside the Fisheries Minister building, after a meeting to present their demands to the authorities to stop fishmeal and fish oil production in West Africa. Greenpeace is in Dakar as part of the “Protect the Oceans” tour, a year long pole to pole expedition. The aim of the expedition is to raise awareness among decision-makers and the international community of the need to protect the oceans and to safeguard biodiversity and ensure the sustainable use of the resources on which many of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people depend.
