dc.description.abstract Coastal West Africa, from Mauritania to Guinea, benefits from a marine upwelling of nutrient-rich cold water which makes it one of the world’s most productive fishing zones. The fisheries sector is therefore extremely important to both national and local economies and to the food security of local people. But fish stocks are threatened by destructive fishing practices, ecosystem decline and competition within the sector. This crucial resource faces further uncertainties because of climate change. en
