What we’ve achieved – Projects

Fight illegal fishing in Senegal

In Senegal, fish stocks with high market value are over-exploited. Transparency is still lacking and important information on fisheries management – like licenses sold to foreign companies – is not published. Van Marwijk Advies assisted a broad Consortium of PRCM,  TMT, the Environmental Justice Foundation and the Senegalese Ministry of Fisheries with the writing of a 3-year project to fight illegal, uncontrolled and unregulated (IUU) fishing in Senegal. The project will increase transparency and improve the country’s capacities to fight possible IUU fishing operations and conduct targeted controls.
