Economics of the pink shrimp (Parapenaeus longirostris
) fishery in Senegal is not only affected by shrimp abundance and markets but also fisheries management and policy. The introduction of the quotas system in 2015 has allowed the firms to increase their catch values. This fishery helps and promotes the sustainable development of the industry, but only slightly benefited the Senegalese government because it provided less contribution to employment an estimated 852 people and US$4.583 million per year of the Gross Domestic Product according to the added value. This paper summarizes the economic outcome of management measures for the deep-water shrimp fishery under Senegalese jurisdiction. Threats such as species slightly overexploited caused by fishing effort and false fishing are identified and management measures such as scientific collection and monitoring of fishery information, catch limits, breeding zones and demonstrating the need for increased involvement of fishers in the management decision-making process are suggested.Pages: 116-120 | 175 Views 18 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
