On the Precipice: crime and corruption in Ghana's Chinese-owned trawler fleet
Fisheries that millions of Ghanaians depend on are at risk of collapse as a result of brazen illegal fishing, catastrophic overfishing by Chinese-owned industrial trawlers and a culture of corruption which has allowed these crimes to go unpunished.
EJF’s investigation draws on evidence from interviews with Ghanaian crew who have witnessed these abuses first-hand, filmed evidence, a network of informants and analysis of vessel tracking data. The picture which emerges is one of systematic corruption that enables illegal fishing and human rights abuses to go unreported and unpunished in the country’s waters. From port authorities to Navy officials, EJF alleges that the web of corruption is so deep and entangled that sustainability, and the defence of human rights, is impossible without reform.
