The development of value-added demersal Fishery Commodity In Ghana – The Challenges Of The Future
The important role of the fisheries sub-sector to Ghana's export development cannot be over-emphasised. Demersal fish species attract reasonably high prices on the international market, especially when value is added to the landed product. This paper reviews the demersal fishery resource of Ghana as an export commodity, and discusses the economic implications of value-addition for Ghana. It also identifies some challenges the industry is likely to be confronted with in the near future, and proposes strategies to effectively manage these challenges.
