FISH4ACP

Unlocking the potential
of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture
in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific

São Tomé and Principe

FISH4ACP sets out to advance the value chains of coastal pelagic fisheries on the African island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe by developing a sustainable fisheries sector, while enabling communities to access organised commercial markets.

São Tomé and Principe’s relative isolation is a major constraint on private sector-led growth. Bolstering its’ ties with the global economy will require a combination of policy reforms and investments in infrastructure.

FISH4ACP will work to overcome some of the complex challenges of expanding post-harvest infrastructure to comply with national and international health requirements and open the value chain to new export markets.

Safeguarding aquatic resources for the benefit of the communities that rely on them for their livelihoods and food security stands centre stage to the project’s objectives.

Goals include extending multiple environmental, economic and social benefits to help meet the UN's 2030 Agenda, in particular Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, on conservation of the world’s oceans, seas and marine resources.
