The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development has ramped up its engagement with stakeholders in preparation for the 2024 closed fishing season.

Sector Minister Mavis Hawa Koomson announced that educational efforts have been extended to a broader audience of fishermen. The closed fishing season is scheduled from July 1 to July 31 for canoes and inshore vessels. Industrial trawlers will observe a longer closed season from July 1 to August 31.

In a recent media briefing, Minister Koomson emphasized the increased scope of this year’s educational campaign. “We have expanded it this year. We used to bring only a few executives but this time, we added some of the other members and the whole room was full so I believe the education has gone deeper than it has always been.”

She also mentioned her visit to Sekondi, where she discussed the upcoming closed season with local fishermen, and highlighted ongoing communication efforts. “Recently, I went to Sekondi and I told them about it and we are still sending them messages and I am also using this platform to inform them again that we should be used to the closed season by now since we know it is very beneficial to us,” she added.
