Government Contacts & Information Resources for
Commercial Fishing, Seafood, Aquaculture, Marine & Oceans in Liberia


The industrial fishery in Liberia involves bottom trawlers targeting demersal fish and shrimp, purse seiners and long liners targeting off shore tuna resources, crab vessels and on-shore cold storage facilities. All industrial fishing vessels fishing in Liberian waters must carry observers and Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) as a requirement of obtaining a license.

Fishing vessels, as well as vessels importing fish, are required to land their catches under inspection at the fishing pier in the Free Port of Monrovia; transhipment must also take place in port under inspection. Fishing vessels that fish in Liberian waters and companies that import fish are required to pay taxes to the Liberian Government.

Industrial Fisheries are regulated by the Regulations Relating to Fisheries, Fishing and Related Activities for the Marine Fisheries Sector in the Republic of Liberia.

For more information on Fishing Vessel license information, fisheries and aquaculture policies, EU-Liberia Sustainable fisheries partnership agreement, Mou for tuna fishing activities in the waters of Liberia, See Liberia Bureau of National Fisheries.

The marine fishery resources of Liberia are exploited by two fisheries:

- the artisanal canoe fishery operating in estuaries and shallow inshore waters and extending from the shoreline to a depth of 20–40 m;

- the industrial trawl fishery supposedly operating in open deeper waters, and targetting at finfish or shrimp.

Liberia has a fairly good potential for various types of fisheries which are practised in different ecological sectors.

The industrial trawl fishery is directed to several demersal finfish (croakers, grunts, threadfins, seabreams, sea perches, etc.) and coastal penaeid shrimps. Industrial fisheries for deep - sea sparids and deep -sea shrimp are still to be developed. The biomass and yield potential of fish stocks off the slope are not yet estimated. But judging from information for adjacent waters, the abundance of the exploited stocks in Liberian waters is modest.

The shrimp resources exploited in Liberia are similar to those fished in adjacent waters. Of the three penaeid species that occur in the shrimp catches of this West African region, Penaeus notialis is by far the dominant species in the catch, followed by Parapenaeopsis atlantica, a small coastal species found in waters to 20 m depth, and Parapenaeus longirostris, which occurs in low abundance in waters of 100 to 400 m depth.


Inland Fisheries in Liberia

Freshwater bodies cover 15,050 km˛ (14%) of the total area of Liberia. These include rivers, lakes, lagoons, creeks and streams that drain to the Atlantic coast. Inland fisheries contribute approximately 25% of fish consumed by rural dwellers.

Inland fisheries activities take place in all Liberian fresh water bodies, particularly Liberia’s six major rivers and Lake Piso, an inland lagoon connected to the sea in the north of the country. Inland fisheries in Liberia are conducted from shore and dugout canoes at the artisanal level only, using a variety of fishing gear, including:
- Hook and hand line
- Fishing net
- Traditional trap

Major species targeted in the inland fisheries of Liberia include Tilapia and African catfish.


Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profile for Liberia - 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.


Fishery Committee for The West Central Gulf of Guinea - Member Countries are Ivory Coast, Liberia, Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria. Rebuild and maintain robust fisheries resources through policy reforms, cooperative regulatory planning, good governance and improvements in institutions. Develop and implement appropriate management frameworks that ensure fisheries resources are harvested sustainably, improved intra-regional and international trade of fish and fishery products and maximum economic and social benefits are obtained from the fisheries. Develop the capacity of Members’ Small-scale fishers and other operators to create sustainable livelihoods for their people from the sustainable harvest, processing and marketing of their fisheries resources. Enhance national capabilities for efficient, cost effective and sustainable fisheries monitoring, control and surveillance, and establishing mechanisms for effective regional cooperation in MCS and enforcement to stop illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the West Central Gulf of Guinea. Strengthen cooperative research and ensure that resource-related decisions are based on sound knowledge, scientific methodology and best information available. Our Strategic organizational/functional goal is "To ensure the effective implementation of the Committee’s work through results-based management, improved communication, and better financial, human and knowledge management systems and tools".


AQUASTAT is FAO's global information system on water and agriculture developed by the Land and Water Division. It collects, analyses and disseminates data and information by country and by region. Its aim is to provide users interested in global, regional and national analyses with comprehensive information related to water resources and agricultural water management across the world, with emphasis on countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Information for Liberia


Ocean Health Index Liberia - 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. Information for Liberia



Aquaculture in Liberia is currently very limited, occurring for the most part as small, freshwater ponds. There are approximately 1050 small scale fish farmers. There are three fish hatcheries currently under the supervision of the Division of Aquaculture and Inland Fisheries:

In addition the use of floating cages emerged in 2009 on the lower St. Paul River through the initiative of a private entity. This operation is growing Tilapia spp for the local market. There are currently approximately 15 cages of this type, each approximately 5 x 10 metres, and holding up to 500 fish.

The Bureau of National Fisheries is currently seeking to expand aquaculture in Liberia, and seeks expressions of interest in this regard. Please contact us for more information.


The Liberia Food Security through Commercialization of Agriculture (FSCA) Project is among seven national projects in West Africa (Senegal, Mali, Guinea Bissau, Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia) funded by the Italian Government. The main objective of the four-year agricultural development project is to support the development of African agriculture into modern, competitive and commercially more dynamic sector, while building on the achievements and lessons learned from the National Programmes for Food Security. Objective is Increased agricultural productivity, marketed output and incomes of beneficiaries, resulting in improved livelihood of Farmer/Fishery Based Organizations (FBO) members. The project concept emphasizes increased production and commercialization of crops and fishery products by building capacities of FBOs in: Agriculture & fishery production as a potential business enterprise


Liberian fishery resources comprise of different species of fish and crustaceans, many of which are traditionally consumed in the country and the sub-region, but also important high value species such as tuna, long neck cassava fish, napleh, red grouper and sharks that are not preferred in Liberia but have substantial export potential in high value markets. Early estimates of stocks in Liberia, as well as anecdotal evidence from fishing expeditions and increases in landing volumes, indicate that there is scope for significant expansion of both the scale and scope of Liberia’s fish and crustaceans sector.
