Author: WebSec/Thursday, September 29, 2016/Categories: Top News

Personnel of the Ghana Police Marine Unit have been charged to join hands with stakeholders of the fisheries industry to fight illegal, Unregulated and Unreported Fishing [IUU] in Ghana.

The Director-General of ICT of the Ghana Police Service, COP/Mr. David Asante-Apeatu sounded this advice during the closing ceremony of a training workshop for forty [40] personnel from the Marine, Ports and Railways Unit at the newly constructed Marine Police Academy at Anyinase in the Western Region.
COP Apeatu reminded personnel of threats posed by the alarming rate at which Ghana’s fishery resources deteriorate, adding that the Police as law enforcement officers are well informed of the causes of the destruction to the country fishery resources, as well as strategies to resolve the trend.

COP Apeatu urged the participants to let the training serve as a mechanism in their quest for deeper insight into fisheries laws and regulations so as to be effectively positioned to fight maritime insecurities.
The Police Commissioner, on behalf of the IGP, extended tons of gratitude to USAID/Ghana and friends of the Nation for organizing and sponsoring the course.

Participants were taken through contemporary issues in the fisheries industry including the current status of fisheries section in Ghana, ecological basis of the fisheries regulations, sociology and culture of fisher folks and approaches for promoting compliance.
