Commercial Fishing, Seafood, Aquaculture, Marine & Oceans in Democratic Republic of Congo

Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profile for Congo, Democratic Republic of - aquatic species caught by country or area, by species items, by FAO major fishing areas, and year, for all commercial, industrial, recreational and subsistence purposes. The harvest from mariculture, aquaculture and other kinds of fish farming is also included.


Marine fisheries
The DRC has a very small Atlantic Ocean coastline, and marine production is very modest, accounting in the 1980s only for an estimated 2 percent of total national fish harvests. Almost all of the marine production reported derives from artisanal units using canoes and beach seines.

Inland fisheries
There are vast freshwater fisheries resources in the country, contained primarily within the major Rift Valley lakes along the eastern borders with Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia and Uganda, and within the extensive Congo River basin.

Clarias gariepinus

Cyprinus carpio

Stolothrissa tanganicae

Utilization of the catch
Most of the marine catch is marketed as chilled or fresh fish in Kinshasa markets. Inland catches are marketed in cured form, either as smoked, sun-dried or salt-dried product, except for markets in the immediate vicinity of landing sites, where fresh product is available. Industrial processing (freezing) facilities exist at Kalemie on Lake Tanganyika, but their present status is unknown. Waterborne transport plays a critical role in fish distribution and marketing throughout the eastern Rift Valley lakes region and within the Congo River Basin. Fish is a very popular food item in most areas and demand is exceedingly high. However, the isolated location of many of the water bodies and non-existent or extremely disintegrated infrastructure impose severe limitations on distribution and marketing possibilities. FAO estimates for 1998 put the national per capita fish supply at 5.9 kg.


Ocean Health Index Congo - The Ocean Health Index is a valuable tool for the ongoing assessment of ocean health. By providing a means to advance comprehensive ocean policy and compare future progress, the Index can inform decisions about how to use or protect marine ecosystems. The Index is a collaborative effort, made possible through contributions from more than 65 scientists/ocean experts and partnerships between organizations including the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, Sea Around Us, Conservation International, National Geographic, and the New England Aquarium.
