Gabon: A Guide to Improving the Coastal and Inland Fishery Industries

Improving the coastal and inland fisheries sectors in Gabon will promote economic growth, economic diversification, job creation, food security, healthier diets amongst the population, educational initiatives, and combat gender bias. However, improvements will require additional investment funding. The country currently depends primarily on profits from the oil industry, but it is looking for ways to diversify into other industries. Gabon is a fish-rich country; however, lack of funding, lack of development strategies and organization, poor infrastructure, lack of trained workers, and high market prices have left the fisheries industry relatively neglected and antiquated. This additional investment funding will foster economic growth and bring profitability to not only the country and its investors, but to Gabonese citizens as well.
