The Commission of the Indian Ocean

The ECOFISH program at the Commission of the Indian Ocean (1DC) is a EU-funded program that focuses on marine coastal fishery resources in the Eastern and Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean.

The inland and marine coastal fisheries resources of the Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and Indian Ocean region represent a natural wealth of about €50 billion. ECOFISH strives to ensure the sustainable management of these assets by putting in place policies to handle them effectively, by protecting them and by promoting good fishing practices.
