  • Mauritania's Rich Fishery Resources Drives Local Economy

    Mauritania's rich fishery resources benefit both the local economy and the people. As a country that boasts more than 700-kilometers of coastline and resourceful waters, Mauritania catches around 3 million tons of fish every year and as many as 300 fish species are amongst the country's annual catch. The average annual revenue of the nation's fishing industry amounts to 300 million U.S. dollars, 20 percent of the national revenue, according to statistics. Apart from its positive impact on the national economy, the fishery industry also alleviates the problem of food shortages and unemployment in the country. Local fishermen said that not only can they earn 20 U.S. dollars every day from selling fish at local markets but they can also benefit from exporting their fish abroad. Althou...

    Nouakchott (/nwɑːkˈʃɒt/, Arabic: نواكشوط‎ Nuwākshūṭ, originally derived from Berber Nawākšūṭ, "place of the winds") is the capital and by far the largest city of Mauritania. It is one of the largest cities in the Sahara. The city is the administrative and economic centre of Mauritania. Nouakchott was a small village of little importance until 1958, when it was chosen as the capital of the nascent nation of Mauritania. It was designed and built to accommodate 15,000 people, but droughts since the 1970s have displaced a vast number of Mauritanians, who resettled in Nouakchott. This caused rapid urban growth and overcrowding, with the city having an estimated population of 2 million in 2008 despite the official figures being under a million.

Local fishermen said that not only can they earn 20 U.S. dollars every day from selling fish at local markets but they can also benefit from exporting their fish abroad. Although the benefits are visible, local fishermen can only continue to earn money on days the weather permits. "We fish here, but everything does not always go smoothly. Sometimes, we can sell fish at a good price, sometimes not. It depends on the weather. If there are much fish in sea, the price will not be good. On the contrary, if there are little fish in sea, we can earn a lot. Our fish is not only sold here but also exported to Europe," said Ibrahim, a Senegalese fisherman fishing in Nouakchott.

The resettled population inhabited slum areas under poor conditions, but the living conditions of a portion of these inhabitants have since been ameliorated. Nouakchott is the hub of the Mauritanian economy and is home to a port that handles 500,000 tonnes of cargo per year and one of the country's two international airport (the other is Nouadhibou, the country's second largest city and a major port, in the north. A significant part[vague] of the population had lead a nomadic lifestyle, but massive droughts in the 1970s and following years brought about significant urbanization, with many former nomads setting up tents and relocating within the city. The city hosts the University of Nouakchott and several markets.
