allAfrica.com: Senegal: Greenpeace Welcomes Cancellation of Fishing Authorizations

Greenpeace welcomes the decision of the Senegalese government to cancel licenses of pelagic fishing vessels issued to 29 foreign trawlers from Russia, Comoros, Lithuania, Saint Vincent Grenadine and Belize.
"These kinds of licenses are a direct threat to employment and food security for millions of Senegalese who have been dependent on fishing for centuries," says Raoul Monsembula, Oceans Campaigner, Greenpeace.
