A Review on Post-Harvest Losses in Artisanal Fisheries of Some African Countries

C.A. Kumolu-Johnson and P.E. Ndimele

Fish is an important source of animal protein especially in African countries, where the combine forces of high cost, disease, low genetic potentials of indigenous species among other factors have raised the cost of livestock almost beyond the reach of the low income groups. Fish becomes the readily accessible source of animal protein but this alternative is also threatened by poor post-harvest techniques in African countries, which have resulted in massive losses. The losses can be physical, economical or nutritional. It is important to develop effective post-harvest technology to reduce the widening gap between fish supply and demand, which have been increasing because of poor post-harvest techniques.
