Morocco, Mauritania to bolster cooperation in fisheries research

Morocco and Mauritania have committed to enhance their cooperation in fisheries research under a specific protocol on cooperation actions signed on the sidelines of the 6th edition of the International Fair Halieutis, held in Agadir February 1 to 5.

The protocol between the National Institute of Fisheries Research (INRH) of Morocco and the Mauritanian Institute of Oceanographic Research and Fisheries (IMROP) provides for cooperation in strengthening the processes of assessment and bio-ecological study of fish stocks, the deepening of knowledge on biodiversity, critical ecological habitats and their connectivity and the strengthening of collaborative studies on ecosystems of common interest in connection with climate and anthropogenic disturbances.

The protocol also provides for harmonizing the methods of collecting and processing information, strengthening the socio-economic studies on shared problems and exchanges on the aspects of aquaculture development.

The protocol implements the commitments contained in the framework agreement on cooperation in scientific research and fisheries concluded on October 3, 2022 in Nouakchott, between INRH and IMROP.
