Fisheries play significant social and nutritional roles in Africa. The sector contributes to food and nutrition security, and provides jobs, in particular for coastal populations, which are often among the poorest and most vulnerable. On average globally, fish and fish products account for 18% of animal protein intake. Due to the growing population and per capita income, demand for fish is expected to increase by 30% by 2030. If the current trend continues without management, the poorest countries will suffer the most. To change this narrative there’s need for efforts towards sustainable use of the marine resources, governance of the sector and deep engagement with coastal communities to bring about transformative interventions that will give new hope to coastal communities. Our guest in this episode is Ms. Malebo Hellen Moepi, an expert in the Aquaculture field, from her experience we shall learn about the status of fisheries in the African continent and address issues related to governance and growth of the fishing sub-sector. Njoki Thuo and Wayne Wafula are the hosts.
