Abstract

An ODA/DANIDA collaborative project in Mozambique is seeking to use collector boats to land and utilise shrimp by-catch usually discarded at sea by industrial trawlers. This resource is estimated to be 40,000 tonnes per year. This report documents a preliminary survey of the Zambezia province fishery in early 1991, by an NRI fish technologist and economist. The study sought to assess the economic feasibility of the proposed by-catch operation in the changing circumstances of the country and also the extent and nature of post-harvest losses in the traditional fishery.
