PREPARATION OF THIS DOCUMENT
A brief review of the current status of the inland fisheries of Africa was presented as document CIFA/72/8 to the First Session of CIFA (N'Djamena, 1972). This was revised as document CIFA/75/Inf. 6 for presentation to the Second Session (Accra, 1975). Since then more information has been included to produce an expanded document on the inland fisheries of Africa. This document is intended for circulation and approval by the relevant authorities in the various African states after which it will be finalized to form part of the FAO series on World Appraisal of Inland Fisheries.
