Every area of development, including education, women’s empowerment, infrastructure improvement, public health, and climate change, requires data to make decisions and take informed action.

Making decisions based on facts can help us achieve our aims for sustainable development.

Unfortunately, Ghana has a lot of problems with reliable statistics in all areas.

Fisheries is one of these industries where data is necessary but lacking.

With assistance from other associated organizations, the Centre for Maritime Law and Security (CEMLAWS) Africa, has been working with fisheries transparency worldwide to generate data for the fishing industry.

The workshop noted that a significant issue is the lack of reliable data in the fisheries sector.

The taking stock report was introduced by deputy minister for fisheries and aquaculture development, Moses Anim.

Ghana was advised to address information gaps, create a central portal for fisheries information, make currently unpublished information publicly available, and produce a thorough annual report on the management of the fisheries sector by the online transparency of fisheries management information.
