When one economic activity is on the decline, there is always the natural urge to look for alternatives. That is the situation confronting the coastal communities in the country where fishing and its ancillary activities has been their mainstay.A report compiled by Dr. Gloria Addico of the Water Research Institute of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR-WRI) and Mr. K.A.A. de Graft-Johnson, indicated that over the past few decades, the dwindling fortunes of these fisher folks and their families as a result of the numerous problems confronting the industry have reached alarming proportions which call for a concerted effort and strategy to explore viable alternatives.
