Jubilee LEED gives technical support to fishermen

FishermenJubilee LEED, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), seeking improvement in the fishing industry, would this year provide technical support to key stakeholders to enhance their livelihood.

The beneficiaries, including fishermen, fishmongers and artisans in the fishing value chain from 26 coastal communities, would undergo training in business management, entrepreneurial skill and marketing.

They would also be provided with opportunities to access credit facilities and build linkages with other stakeholders for improved practices.

Mr Ato Van-Ess, the Jubilee LEED Project Director, told the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi that, the project is being executed in collaboration with some business resources centres.

He was speaking at the sideline of a day’s sensitisation workshop organised by LEED for fishmongers in Kumasi to expose them to best practices in their trade.

The Project Coordinator urged stakeholders in the fishing industry to avail themselves of business development support services for value-added activities along the fishing value chain.

Mr Van-Ess cautioned fishermen to do away with bad practices that had the tendency to hamper the growth of the fishing industry.

He expressed the need for stakeholders to embrace improved technology, particularly in respect of preservation of fish to ensure the availability of wholesome products.

Jubilee LEED, he said, had already assisted some stakeholders to acquire knowledge in improved oven construction and ice box construction.
