Ghana - Fishing

In 2000, the total marine fish catch was 377,570 tons, and the freshwater catch (not including subsistence fishing) about 74,500 tons. Round sardinella and European anchovies together accounted for 49% of the total catch. Exports of fish products amounted to $78.5 million in 2000. In 1973, an industrial fishing complex at Tema began production of canned pilchards and sardines. Lake Volta accounts for about half the freshwater catch. Considerable potential exists for the development of shrimp and fish exports.
