 WWF has been selected and contractualized by the Fishing Directorate to manage component 2 of the Project funded by the World Bank after a call for bid. Component 2 of the Project is about rehabilitating Ecosystems essential for coastal Fisheries. In the end, in collaboration with fishery communities in the sites covered by the project, WWF will create a protected fishing zone or Marine Protected Area covering Mbodiene, Pointe Sarene, Mballing and Nianing in the small Coast and another one in Dakar in the areas between Soumbedioune and ouakam. Artificial Reefs will be immersed at Yenn and Bargny. Lobsters and slipper lobsters in the fisheries of Dakar between Yoff and Soumbedioune are the species chosen for a process of ecolabelling under the MSC label. In sites hosting Protected Fishing zones and artificial reefs, access rights and their associated management tools will be defined.
