This essay tells the story of how by-catch from trawlers arrived as a new opportunity arising from foreign investments in Ghana's fisheries, and the way in which the local fish trader elite of Moree managed, in an entreprenneurial manner, to gain access to this new resource. The case study of Moree is conerned with the way actors in "traditional" and "modern" systems of fishing interact and the economic and social changes that occur in a local community as a result of women's entrepreneurship in relation to both systems.
