Description of the fisheries sector in Somaliland

The fisheries sector has historically not been a priority area for the Somaliland people, and hence the agro-pastoral system and livestock sector has remained the economic backbone of the region. Until the droughts in 1974 and 1976, only very few coastal people were seriously involved in the sector. However, as part of an overall Government policy many drought-affected people were resettled along the coast and encouraged to take up fishing. This initiative was followed by the construction of Berbera Cold Storage and the Fishing Centers in Zeila and Berbera. Consequently, an increased trend was observed in fish consumption in the period 1986-1989, even though the Somaliland people remain some of the lowest consumers of fish and fish products.

The main types of fishing activities in Somaliland:

Despite the diversity and abundance of the marine resources available in Somaliland, the sector has still not developed a wide range of fishing activities designed to harvest the variety and diversity of fish species and other offshore resources. The Coastal and Marine Resources Policy in Somaliland identifies five different types of fishing, of which only Artisan and Industrial fishing is of significance for the sector.
