In this episode of the China in Africa Podcast, Kofi Agbogah of the Ghanian coastal advocacy group Hen Mpoano join Eric & Cobus to discuss the unfolding crisis in the country's fish stocks due to illegal fishing by foreign trawlers, mostly from China.

For more, read the June 2019 report published by Hen Mpoano and the UK-based Environmental Justice Foundation "Stolen at Sea: How illegal ‘saiko’ fishing is fuelling the collapse of Ghana’s fisheries."


What do you think should be done to stop illegal "saiko" fishing off the coast of Ghana? Who do you think is responsible? The Ghanian government who should enforce their own laws that prevent this kind of over-fishing or the Chinese government who should rein in their country's distant fishing fleet? Let us know what you think.
