Abstract or Summary
  • The exploitation of aquatic food products has been very fundamental as a source of livelihood in the Sub Saharan Africa in particular and the world in general. Global production of aquatic food products totaled approximately 93.2 million metric tons in 1997 and sub Saharan Africa contributed 3.7 per cent. For the past two decades aquaculture has steadily risen in sub Sahara Africa. Given the predominant role of aquaculture in the livelihood of most Africans, farmers have moved from subsistence to income generation. At this level, farmers are faced with tough competition in the commercialization of these products for income generation, especially at the dawn of globalization. This research paper is aimed at looking at the possibilities of how African farmers may be linked to market opportunities, improve their poorly functioning markets, weak domestic demand and meet up with competition at local, regional and international levels. The paper will also seek ways in which African aquatic products will be involved in the globalization arena and will be treated with a human face. The research paper also examines market access for these aquatic products in the context of international trade and related domestic policies. Looking for the way forward, the paper will propose ways in which aquatic farmers in sub Saharan Africa can widen and improve their market outlets for sustainable development.
