Country Highlights

Equatorial Guinea & its Fishing Industry

Equatorial Guinea, known for its dominance in the oil and gas sector, holds significant untapped potential in the fishing industry. With over 200km of coastline along the Gulf of Guinea and warm waters teeming with diverse fish species, the country possesses a promising fishing sector. Despite recent declines in industrial production, there is an opportunity to revitalize this underdeveloped industry by addressing challenges and leveraging opportunities with the expertise of RFC.

Marine surveys indicate that Equatorial Guinea’s fisheries have an estimated annual production potential of around 75,000 tons, yet actual catches have fallen below 200 tons, highlighting substantial room for sustainable growth. By offering training programs and enhancing infrastructure such as cold storage facilities, RFC can enhance productivity and elevate quality standards to unlock this vast potential. The establishment of fishing cooperatives and fostering community engagement will also play a crucial role in revitalizing the sector.

Equatorial Guinea envisions leveraging its fishing industry to enhance domestic food security and boost exports. RFC’s proficiency in value chain analysis and establishing market linkages can facilitate this goal by identifying key species and strategic partnerships. Opportunities may exist in aquaculture, particularly in high-value products like shrimp and seaweed. Investing in processing facilities to add value before exportation and leveraging regional free trade agreements can open up new markets for Equatorial Guinea’s seafood products.

With effective management practices, this renewable resource has the potential to yield long-term economic benefits while enhancing nutritional security. RFC stands ready to offer guidance on certification standards, technology implementation such as vessel monitoring systems, and promoting an eco-friendly approach that balances production, livelihoods, and conservation efforts to ensure sustainability. Overall, revitalizing Equatorial Guinea’s under-realized fishing industry presents a significant opportunity for economic growth and development with positive impacts on both the economy and local communities.

By revitalizing and expanding Equatorial Guinea’s fishing industry, not only can the country diversify its economy away from heavy reliance on oil and gas, but it can also create new employment opportunities, improve food security, and boost exports. Through strategic interventions such as training programs, infrastructure improvements, market analysis, and sustainable practices, RFC can help unlock the full potential of the fishing sector. By promoting responsible and efficient utilization of this valuable marine resource, Equatorial Guinea can achieve a more balanced and resilient economy while safeguarding its natural environment for future generations.
