Energy Expenditure Survey and Assessment of the Economics of Fish Processing At Anlo Beach
Contributing to the high rate of deforestation is the widespread use of inefficient fish smoking techniques. The popular fish smoking stove used in Ghana is the Chorkor stove introduced in Ghana by FAO in 1969. Since then, there have been few improvement attempts with recorded successes as well as some failures. Some of the successful innovations and improvements to the Chorkor stove include the Morrison stove, Frismo/Frismo stove, AWEP stoves among others. This study will investigate and compare the energy budgets and economics of using the various fish smoking techniques. The Anlo Beach community is used as a case study.
