26 Scopus citations


Examines the theoretical assumptions on which Euro-African fishing agreements are based, and discusses their limitations, which derive mainly from the interactions between economic dependency, technological backwardness, and capital scarcity in African countries. Considers the historical, economic, and political backgrounds to the fishing agreements, and examines the content of these agreements. Focuses in greater detail on an evaluation of the implementation and implications of these agreements for the sustainable development of Africa's pelagic fisheries as well as for an economic development that would benefit the majority of the people in the region. Suggests several innovative ways to manage Africa's fisheries resources to ensure their sustainable exploitation. -from Author
