In West Africa, well-known for its rich marine ecosystems, the threats to biodiversity are rapidly increasing.
Human activities including overfishing, the use of destructive fishing methods, like bottom trawling and industrial fishing and commercial aquaculture are leaving Senegal’s shoreline devastated.
