    In Senegal, fisheries are vital to the lives and livelihoods of more than 12 million people. Located on the west coast of Africa and adjacent to one of the most biologically productive ocean currents on Earth, Senegal depends on its fisheries for the majority of its edible protein, for many of the jobs in its coastal communities and for its most valuable export products. But today, Senegal's rich fisheries are being depleted, its domestic food supply has become less secure and its efforts to increase export earnings have faltered. Overfishing is beginning to take its toll.
