Open letter to the Hon. Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development

We, the undersigned civil society organisations, unions, and associations working to secure safe, sustainable, and equitable fisheries in Ghana are writing this letter to seek clarification on the potential authorisation of two industrial trawlers in Ghanaian waters. This concern has arisen following the circulation of a letter purportedly detailing a request by DUMA FARMS AND FISHERIES LTD. that the vessels SHUN FENG 906 and SHUN FENG 907 are granted licences pending approval by the Fisheries Minister and the Ghana Maritime Authority.


We are respectfully requesting clarification with regards to the prospective licensing of these two vessels. Furthermore, we implore the Honourable Minister and her colleagues to abide by pledges made in the MFMP to prevent the continued exploitation of Ghana’s precious natural resources, thereby showing their determination in the fight to protect marine ecosystems and the coastal communities who rely so heavily on them.
