    Morocco: Oilseeds sector review 2014
    Also available in:

    The Moroccan oilseed sector has experienced a substantial decline since the 1990s. The decline began with the cessation of high guaranteed minimum prices in 1996, and it continued during the government’s internal market reforms and trade liberalization programmes of the 2000s. The most influential factor in the liberalization of the oilseed complex was the bilateral free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States in 2006. Although guaranteed producer prices were re-introduced in 2003, this wer e at a much lower level than those prices of the early 1990s. At the same time as trade protection was lowered for most of the oilseed complex, comprehensive interventions were put in place for the politically sensitive wheat/bread value chain. Meanwhile, the production area of common wheat has more than doubled since the mid-1980s. Even at its late 1980s peak, however, the oilseed area only represented about 4 percent of the total acreage of cereals. Today, oilseed area is only 1 percent of th e total, with the majority of this area dedicated to sunflower seeds as a foodstuff rather than for crushing for oil.

    Report of the FAO Working Group on the Assessment of Small-Pelagic Fish off Northwest Africa. Agadir, Morocco, 31 March-10 April 2003 / Rapport du Groupe de travail de la FAO sur l'évaluation des petits pélagiques au large de l'Afrique nord-occidentale. Agadir, Maroc, 31 mars-10 avril 2003 2003

    A permanent FAO working group, composed of scientists from the coastal states and from countries or organizations that play an active role in northwest African pelagic fisheries, was established in March 2001. The main objective of the working group is to propose options for stock management and exploitation of their fisheries and provide catch advice for each year, as well as to improve the assessment of the small pelagic resources for the economic benefit of Morocco, Mauritania, the Gambia and Senegal and ensure optimal sustainability of the resources. The meeting was held in Agadir, Morocco, from 31 March to 10 April 2003. A total of 19 scientists from eight countries and FAO participated. As a precautionary approach, the working group recommended that the catch levels of small pelagics should not exceed the average recorded during the last five years. For sardinella, it recommended that the combined catch of both species in 2004 should not exceed the mean le vel of the preceding three years, i.e. 420 000 tonnes.
