Senegal-Mauritania fishing agreement*

Two and a half years after the end of their last fishing agreement, Dakar and Nouakchott concluded at the beginning of July to a new convention allowing Senegalese fishermen to work in Mauritania.
They will be allowed to fish 50,000 tonnes of small pelagic fish per year and use a maximum of 400 boats.

On the Mauritanian coast, it is a relief for these Senegalese fishermen.
