Sekondi: “Suspend The Ban On Fishing For This Year” – Fisher Folks


Fisher folks on Friday, demonstrated at the Albert Bosomtwi-sam Fishing harbour in Sekondi in to register their displeasure over the ban on all fishing activities offshore beginning August 7th, 2018.

They are of the view that though in principle they agree to the ban, the timing is wrong as consultations on the ban was also limited.

“The mention of August as closed season has raised tension so much that its excesses may result in unnecessary acrimony and violent confrontation which may not augur well for the peaceful development of the fishing industry in the region and the nation as a whole,” they lament. |Ghana
