Djibouti fishermen slip away from the harbour in Obock town in Djibouti.
Djibouti fishermen slip away at dawn from the harbour in Obock town in Djibouti October 8, 2004 to go at fishing in the Gulf of Aden. A recent government paper notes that the fishing sector's stagnation is linked to lack of support, absence of equipment and maintenance, illiteracy, and a decentralised system of finance in Djibouti, which with 372 kilometres of coastline currently uses just ten percent of its potential sustainable fish catch. Officials say that enhanced fishing sector could be worth 4,000 jobs and an annual $10million in foreign exchange. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE.
