Abstract:

Fishing is important in the fight against food insecurity, unemployment and in creating jobs. This study describes the socio-economic effects of fishing activities in the Agnéby-Tiassa region. Information was collected through a questionnaire, interview and direct observation in the field. Analysis of the data obtained showed that fishing activities in Agnéby-Tiassa is a source of jobs and earnings. Daily earnings vary between 15000 and 25000 FCFA.
