WWF's work on artisanal fisheries is designed to help resolve those problems. Its overarching objective is to have artisanal fisheries of the west African marine ecoregion adopt methods and practices of sustainable fishing.
Using 2 targets
To reach this objective, two specific targets have been defined:
- methods and practices of sustainable fishing will be implemented and/or reinforced in artisanal fisheries in at least one site (for example in Kayar, Senegal), which will serve as a model in the ecoregion;
- a shared general vision will be developed for artisanal fisheries in countries which benefit from the natural productivity if this ecoregion.
