The problem of overfishing in the great lakes of developing African countries and a review of current policy

This essay has shown that in order to reduce or eliminate the overfishing problem in developing East African countries, current policy needs to be reviewed to include a precautionary approach in rectifying the drastic depletion of fishing stock. This approach should address issues such as the stakeholders’ future position if restrictions such as quota fishing and closed season fishing are imposed. It would also be significantly more effective if other alternatives for obtaining fish for local industry would still get raw fish material for the factories and hence continue to meet its fish market demand. This would also ensure that local communities could generate sufficient income for their needs. Eventually, this approach would reduce the fishing pressure on inland waterways and eliminate the overfishing problem in the region.
