The study provides a description of Ghana's marine and inland Small-Scale Fisheries Organizations (SSFOs), detailing their characteristics, challenges, and awareness of the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication. The report outlines the survey methodology, and covers organization profiles, members' livelihoods, and capacity-building needs. It also provides a snapshot of Ghana's higher-level ("umbrella") fisheries organizations. Findings indicate that Ghanaian SSFOs, mainly informal with low assets endowment, face challenges like disorganization, lack of trust and lack of resources, leading to minimal reliance on collective sales and activities.
