Lusa - Business News - Mozambique: Norway research ship to assess fisheries on FAO-funded mission

Maputo, Feb. 12 (Lusa) - A Norwegian research ship specialised in fisheries arrives in Mozambique on Monday on a mission to support the country under an accord with the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO).
The vessel, named after the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, boasts seven high-tech laboratories and is to gather data about the distribution and abundance of fishing resources, biodiversity and environmental conditions, as it has on other missions.
The aim of the programme on which it is working is to "allow 31 African countries to receive technical and scientific help, with the objective of reorienting fisheries management" in a sustainable way.
The programme - developed by the FAO, Norway's state agency for cooperation and development (NORAD) and the Norwegian Institute of Marine Fisheries (IMR) - is to look at "the multiple impacts of human action on the Indian Ocean, including overfishing, climate changes and pollution, on the fisheries resources in the marine environment, with the aim of preserving its productivity for the benefit of future generations."
