Abstract

This report presents the results of the working seminar entitled "Fisheries research and sustainable development of West African natural marine resources: what are the stakes?", held from 24 to 26 September 2001 at Conakry. The aim of the seminar was to investigate the current and future stakes in fisheries research, taking account of economic, institutional and environmental changes, which, for thirty years, have revolutionised the fishing sector in West Africa. The programme of the seminar was structured around three main themes:
- The question of access: consideration from different angles;
- The needs of social science research and its place in the current framework of West African fisheries research;
- New fields of research.
The seminar also showed that scientific collaboration at regional scale was the main key to progress in the social sciences.
