Publication: Cape Verde : Fisheries Sector Strategy Assessment
This report is the result of a technical and economic assessment of the fisheries sector in Cape Verde. While originally focusing particularly on the long-term development and governance strategy of the sector, the authors, faced with the increasingly apparent need for fundamental restructuring of the sector, redirected their attention to what has become an assessment of how to create a viable fishing sector that can effectively reach realistic stakeholder objectives. The draft report was discussed with representatives of the public and private sectors in Cape Verde September 19 and 20, 2007. The findings and recommendations of the workshop have been summarized in separate textboxes in the report; the complete findings have been attached as annex C. This report suggests that a strategy supporting a combination of short-term actions is needed to create a sector - using gradually decreasing public and donor funding - that would provide: a) fishermen and other stakeholders a long-term sustainable source of raw material, b) equitable income growth and employment prospects, and c) provide the country with a dependable source of protein for human consumption.
