Repackaging Marine and Aquatic Information for Fishermen in Ghana: The Way Forward
The study is an attempt to provide a model or prototype for basic information on fishing such as required by fishermen in Ghana. It is based on questions raised by the fishermen themselves. Numerous researches have been carried out on marine and aquatic resources but the findings remain abstract to fishermen, the majority of whom are illiterate. The information needs of the fishermen is repackaged in easily comprehensible form. Types of fishing implements, techniques of fish preservation, marketing methods, fish farming and further sources of information are given. The next step is to translate this information into the local languages.
