Sustainable Fisheries Management in Senegal

Project Title: Senegal Dekkal Geej (Restoring the Sea)

A sixth of Senegal’s population relies on fisheries for their livelihood, yet the sector faces challenges posed by poor fisheries management practices and increasing domestic and international demand for fish. The Senegal Dekkal Geej project is working with local fishers, the Senegalese government and the private sector to improve food security, increase incomes and strengthen resilience.
