To ensure effectiveness and sustainability, the Fish Gov project will work with stakeholders at national, regional and international levels. At national level, the departments in charge of fisheries and aquaculture development, the fisherfolks, the fish traders and all other players along the value chain will be targeted. At regional level the RECs, RFBs, RFMOs and NGOs working to improve sustainable fisheries development will be targeted.
