    The UNDP/FAO Project for the Development of Fisheries in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden RAB/83/028 (previously RAB/77/008 and RAB/81/002) commenced a joint biological study of the Gulf of Suez and Egyptian Red Sea fisheries during late 1979. Emphasis was directed towards the collection and analysis of data relevent to assessing the state of the fish stocks, and providing an improved basis for the management of the fisheries. This report contains the fifth of a series of stock assessments based on these data. It deals with the Goldstripe sardinella which is caught by purse seine principally from the Gulf of Suez, but also from more southern waters off the Egyptian Red Sea coast. During the study period the Goldstripe sardinella contributed up to 15% of the purse seine catches from the Gulf of Suez; and up to 20% of the catches from the more southern ground within and adjacent to Foul Bay.

    Report on socio-economic aspects of the Gulf of Aden fisheries in the Republic of Djibouti 1982
    Also available in:

    The Djibouti coastline on the Gulf of Aden is about 242 kms long. The present catch is estimated at about 350 tons. There are about 286 fishermen who operate with 111 houris and sambuks of different shapes and sizes. They are based in Djibouti, Tadjouram Obock and Khor Anghar. The number of fishermen has increased during the past few years due to the drought conditions which have forced nomadic herdsmen to the coast. The fishermen have a very low standard of living. This is mainly due to the low productivity, high cost of living and large families. The fishermen's per capita income is less than two-thirds of the national average. A Fishermen Cooperative Society was established recently in Djibouti City with the objective of improving the socioeconomic conditions of fishermen. Although the subject has not been thoroughly examined it is believed that the main constraints in the fisheries sector are as follows: lack of a fisheries-related infrastructure; the low productivity of the tradit ional fishing methods; lack of credit facilities and technical services; lack of organised fish distribution and marketing systems within the country. Obock is recommended for the establishment of a Cooperative Fishing Centre as a pilot project where cooperative activities can be introduced and applied in due course in other areas.
