Fishing for Development. Small-Scale Fisheries in Africa

Inge Tvedten and Bjørn Hersoug (eds.) (1992)

Uppsala: The Scandinavia Institute of African Studies 227 p.

Small-scale or artisanal fishery is a neglected sector in research on African development, despite the fact that fishery is a vital source of protein and income for a large number of people and an important source of revenue for governments. In this volume research on artisanal fisheries has been pooled together in general themes and contributions based on research from Mozambique, Zambia, Angola, Tanzania and West Africa.
