Three West African countries have forged a partnership to implement a joint fisheries’ observer program as part of their effort to ensure safe, secure, and legal fisheries are maintained across the Gulf of Guinea.

Ghana has signed a pact with Togo and Benin to carry out the joint monitoring of the countries’ fisheries, including sharing intelligence supplied by the Regional Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance Centre (RMCSC) that was created in the first quarter of 2021 by Fisheries Committee for the West Central Gulf of Guinea (FCWC), whose membership include Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Togo.
