GHANA: the Ministry of Fisheries provide fibreglass boats to replace wooden canoes and boats

According to an article published in Myjoyonline.Com in October 2007 the government in Ghana has launched a number of aid programmes to support the growth of the fishing industry.

Besides the provision of boats to arttisanal fishermen the government has also pledged to build a fishing harbour at Mumford near Apam that would have a place for mending nets, cold storage facilities and an ice block manufacturing plant, a fish market and a fuel depot. Other facilities would include an early childhood development centre, offices with storerooms, a meeting place, toilets and a machine shop for repairing engines to serve fishermen in the two towns.

Furthermore 400 fishmongers had benefited from the Ministry's credit schemes in the area while 25 outboard motors were distributed to fishermen on hire purchase basis.
