African Union Calls for Uniform Fishing Regime

The African Union is pushing for uniform fishing laws and increased investment in the sector to control the $2.5 billion worth of resources currently trawled away by advanced nations. Mr Bruce Mukanda, a senior programme officer at the AU's Animal Bureau said all member states need to adopt a framework already developed by the continental body. "At the continental perspective, we are looking at individual country policies as we aim to harmonise them across the continent in order to harness this huge fisheries resource," Mr Mukanda said in Nairobi during a Ticad VI side event. Kenya is one of the countries that are yet to exploit their fisheries potential. Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett said the country is losing a lot of its fisheries resources to illegal trade by aliens, depriving the country of much-needed revenue. He said Kenya is making several strides in improving the sector and has passed the fisheries Bill that will address the challenges.
