Catches in the Mauritania Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) 1950-2002

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Marine fisheries represent a significant, but finite, natural resource for coastal countries. The majority of the catches in some of the areas of the coast are not primarily by the coastal countries, but rather as in this example, where countries from Europe and Asia (Japan and South Korea are in the ‘others’ group) represent the majority. According to this estimation Mauritania only landed about 10% of the total catch in 2002, with Netherlands as the nation with the largest catch (23%) in this zone.
