Travel report: Sofala Bank Artisanal Fisheries Project, Nampula Province, Mozambique
The report points out that the project has achieved impressive results in mobilising understanding and support for its development ideas and objectives; and in established a number of associated working groups and associations.
The report notes that fishery development activities are primarily achieved by extensionists, and focus on gear diversification, changes in post-harvest utilisation, and monitoring of the resources.
The paper concludes that the The Sofala Bank Fishery Project should be seen in the context of total Norwegian support to the fishery sector. While the sector support focuses on policy, management and research at the central and macro-level, the current project is in many ways a traditional integrated development project at the regional and micro-level.
