Mozambique spends $15m to curb illegal fishing

Mozambique’s Ministry of Fisheries says it has spent US$15 million over the past five years in the fight against illegal fishing in the country’s waters.

A campaign to promote good fishing practices was launched in April in Chidenguele in the southern province of Gaza. Borges stressed that the campaign is intended to inform fishermen what they should and should not do. With the help of the Community Fishing Councils (CCP), the Minister thought it would be possible to reduce the amount of illegal fishing year after year.

Data from the 2012 census of the sector indicate that there about 40,000 small scale fishing boats in Mozambique, but of these only 1,000 use a motor. During the visit, Borges delivered outboard motors to 15 fishermen
