Sharks are among the most endangered creatures on the planet, primarily due to overfishing. In West Africa, this is a crucial issue related to food security and cultural behavior. This project aims to shed light on the socio-cultural aspect of the problem and advocate for a more holistic strategy for shark and ray conservation and fisheries management. This project focuses on the central role of fishermen and local organizations that must be considered in conservation activities.
