Type de document
Working document

Border Fisheries Inspectors have a number of instruments at their disposal while performing official controls. Therefore this manual complements and does not replace the traditional inspection and surveillance tools.

Fishery and aquaculture products are the most traded food commodities worldwide with international trade worth over US$146 billion per annum (SOFIA, 2016). Fish contributes significantly to the employment, income, and food and nutrition security to millions of people globally. Fisheries and Aquaculture contributes to United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No.2 (2015-2030) which is on food security and improved nutrition and also SDG 14 on conservation and sustainable use of water resources.
