2024 Closed Fishing Season Slated For July 1

The Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development has announced an increase in its consultations with stakeholders in preparation for the 2024 closed fishing season. Mavis Hawa Koomson, the sector minister, has stated that extensive education about the upcoming exercise has been provided to most fishermen.

The ministry has scheduled the 2024 closed fishing season for canoes and inshore vessels from July 1 to July 31.

Industrial trawlers will observe a two-month closed season, from July 1 to August 31. Speaking to the media, Mavis Hawa Koomson emphasized that fishermen have been adequately briefed ahead of this year’s operation.

“We have expanded it this year. We used to bring only a few executives but this time, we added some of the other members and the whole room was full so I believe the education has gone deeper than it has always been.

“Recently, I went to Sekondi and I told them about it and we are still sending them messages and I am also using this platform to inform them again that we should be used to the closed season by now since we know it is very beneficial to us.”
