Renewal of the Mauritania-Senegal fisheries agreement

Fishing licences allocated to Senegalese fishermen in the framework of the Mauritania-Senegal agreement will soon expire. Professional organisations from the two countries, the Conseil national interprofessionnel de la pêche artisanale du Sénégal (CONIPAS) and the artisanal section of the Fédération nationale des pêches (FNP) met in Nouakchott to raise awareness with their governments about the issues arising, including the necessity to mark the boundaries at sea in order to avoid incidents linked to fishermen incursions. Another issue that the two professional organisations will discuss is the renewal of the fishing licences. The latest protocol allocated 300 licences for artisanal fishing boats, with compulsory landings of 15% of the catches, and 10 licences for industrial tuna fishing, with compulsory employment of Mauritanian workers on board.
