Sustainable fishing and processing in Djibouti


Titre : Sustainable fishing and processing in Djibouti

Pays : Djibouti

Dates : Start date : 1 July 2013 // End date : 9 July 2021

Identification projet : NL-KVK-27378529-PSI13DJ01

Programme : Private Sector Investment programme (PSI)

As urban populations and incomes grow in developing countries, the worlds appetite for fish continues to increase, and prices of fish are rising. At present East African governments barely enforce even rudimentary environmental good practices, allowing devastation of marine ecosystems to continue. However, as a result of large international fishing fleet leaving the Djibouti / Somalia area in the nineties fish stocks have increased and probably fully recovered in the coastal waters. The waters of Djibouti have an estimated sustainable catch of 4,000 to 5,000 tons per year. The fish processing plant will be set up in the city of Djibouti. The fish will be supplied by local fishermen (through their cooperatives) who are landing their fish in Djibouti harbour. The applicant was founded in 2004 and is a fish trader and processor in Somalia. He has set up more than ten landing sites where local fishermen supply the factory with fresh fish. The local partner is founded in 1979 and is involved in construction, transport and local trading (fish from the applicant). The partners intend to set up a joint venture. The project will develop sustainable fishing and a processing plant in the city of Djibouti. The new factory will be the first HACCP certified fish processing plant in Djibouti. High quality sea food products will be locally produced for the domestic market and for export, mainly to Ethiopia.
