West Africa Task Force meets in Ghana

The Second West Africa Task Force meeting has taken place in Accra, Ghana on 11-12 April 2016. The six Task Force member countries of Benin, Côte D'Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Togo attended the meeting and, building on existing agreements for information sharing within the Fisheries Committee for West Central Gulf of Guinea (FCWC), made significant commitments to share information on fishing vessels licensed by Task Force countries.

Per Erik Bergh, Stop Illegal Fishing, welcomed this news 'we have seen through our experiences with the FISH-i Africa Task Force that the sharing of license lists between countries makes a real difference in identifying illegal activity and in increasing compliance within a region. We look forward to seeing the benefits of the cooperation being demonstrated within the West Africa Task Force.'
