Ghanaian fisheries are structured on a tradition of community and religion, coupled with the country’s social norms and customary laws. They work at both the commercial and subsistence levels. Commercial fishing has three key sub-sectors: artisanal, semi-industrial and industrial. The artisanal and semi-industrial sub-sectors are characterised by the use of locally built vessels and equipment such as purse and beach seines, setnets, drifting gillnets, hook and line gears (artisanal), and trawl gear (semi-industrial). Industrial fisheries use imported steel vessels for their operations in purse seining and bottom trawling. Common issues in fisheries include: the use of unapproved gears, overcapacity in fishing effort, pollution, poverty and child labour. However, there are strong opportunities for heritage and ecotourism in the sector. The work of the One Ocean Hub in Ghana will examine the relationships and trade-offs between the various fisheries sub-sectors and the role of heritage and ecotourism in building sustainable livelihoods.
