When it comes to fishing, the region of South Africa seems to be just fine. It is a very developed part of the world, maybe even one of the best ones. Sea fishing and coastal fishing seem to be something that a lot of money is invested in by the countries that are located there.
It looks like fishing there makes a lot of problems and all of them are actually connected to climate changes. But also pirates and the world’s economy make problems too. People made some steps to improve fishing and to make sure that the productivity will increase in the future. One of the most important and key questions is about creating an industry of fishing that will be good and sustainable there. It is very important to have quality and good fish products because those products will be exported to the whole world. Because of this, South Africa government invested about 91 million Singapore dollars in this industry. Using this money, they will improve the production, but also they have done many things to improve different fishing societies.
A society like it is Indian Ocean Tuna Commission will have to make fish only from that part of the world, and some of the main trade organizations are included in this business. Meanwhile, East Africa is not so successful when it comes to fishing. It seems like they are having a lot of problems there. Starting with climate changes that are making steps back in fishing and because of that and solving this problem, there was a program invested in. It was the improvement program of the climate in general invested by the World Bank. This program should have a very positive result on this part of the world and in this way it should pave the way for all the other investitures.
But, that is not all. There is another problem there. It is meeting with the piracy that this region is facing. It is very hard to solve this big problem. Illegal problems of the fishing and piracy seem to be something that people are spending money on. And it looks like it is a bit more than 118 million dollars. Currently, this is becoming a worldwide problem. Fish production has fallen many times over the last years. Especially when we’re talking about the coast of Somalia and people there is attacked by pirates all the time. The trade there is not safe anymore. The industry here is obviously falling down as you can see. More and more problems are showing and they are ruining any chance for making some different investments here. Something that needs to be invested in is definitely the equipment. But, it is not just that.
There are many things that need to be done and improved. Fishing villages by the coast are created and it seems to be a very good and effective fighting way with illegal trade and fishing. So, we can obviously say that fishing is improving. But, at the other hand, there is less and less fish in the sea and it is a huge threat to all sea world and fishing industry.
