While FCWC Member States are benefitting from the overall PESCAO programme, the direct support to the FCWC Secretariat named the FCWC-PESCAO project is related to component two: ‘building the capacities of competent national and regional MCS authorities to deter IUU fishing’.
component is directly implemented by FCWC and its partners Sub-Regional
Fisheries Commission (SRFC), European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA), TA
AGRER. The key result areas of the project are:
under this project include:
A lack of information and a lack of integration
into national development strategies undermine the contribution of fisheries to
the economic development and management of West Africa fisheries.
This component aims to improve regional
governance of marine resources through knowledge-based advice and researched
scientific data via the following results:
Result 1 – Knowledge on the state of shared
stocks and/or fisheries of common interest is to improved notably through enhanced
data collection, harmonised assessment methodologies and better consideration
of climate and hydrologic changes, etc.
Result 2 – Management measures / plans for shared
stocks and/or fisheries of common interest are developed and implemented, with
full association of stakeholders – including small scale fishermen and women
involved in trading and processing activities.
Result 3 – These management measures may include
specific measures to reduce by-catches of endangered species, the impact on
marine habitats and / or post-harvest loses.
This component is being implemented through the
objective of the project is to improve regional governance of marine resources
in the CECAF area using knowledge-based advice by strengthening management
processes to contribute to sustainable fisheries, food security, and
project aims to enhance regional policy dialogues, improved science-management
processes for the CECAF region, and the integration of CECAF management advice
into national frameworks.

project is a collaborative project between 10n research and educational
institutions primarily aimed at improving and supporting the production of
scientific advice on the status of demersal species stocks to serve fisheries
management and thus enable the sustainable exploitation of fisheries under
national jurisdiction (EEZ) of partner countries in West Africa.
RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Morocco says two people
have died and nine others are missing after a fishing boat with at least
11 crew members aboard capsized off southwest Morocco.
The Moroccan Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries said the boat left the port of Tan Tan on Thursday afternoon in favorable weather without issuing any distress signals.
