101.6 million liters

Annual release of premix fuel is 101.6 million liters, according to the Fisheries Ministry.

According to Mr. Moses Anim, the deputy minister in charge of fisheries, the government annually distributes around 101.6 million liters of premix gasoline to the nation’s fishermen.

It was terrible to learn from fishermen that there was a lack of premix gasoline in the nation, said Mr. Anim, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Trobu Constituency, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Tema.

He claimed that between GHC150 and GHC200 million is spent by the government to subsidize premix fuel, and that this should not be the cause of any shortages in the nation.

Mr. Anim stated that in order to regulate usage and keep track of how premix fuel was supplied to the more than 300 landing beaches, the government will shortly develop the automated system for it.

He added that some dishonest people working in the fishing industry were responsible for the theft and sale of premix fuel at the expense of the fishermen.

He claimed that the automation system provides the best defense against the immorality of using premix fuel.

Mr. Anim urged the committees in charge of premix fuel at the various landing beaches to make sure the proper steps were taken to protect the interests of the participants in the fishing business.

According to Mr. Vance Kweku Adedze, Communications Officer for the Ghana National Canoe Fishermen Council’s Volta Regional Chapter, the number of fishermen has increased, necessitating a greater distribution of resources.

He claimed that some resources, such as the government-provided premix fuel, were insufficient to meet the demand of fishers.

He noted that although marine officers have been properly informed, no steps have been made to protect the inshore borders in the Volta Region. He claimed that other fishermen flocked to the volta waters at night during the close season.

Mr. Adedze also demanded the establishment of strict monitoring at a few strategic locations inside the enclave to control and keep an eye on those who trespass onto the volta coastlines in order to engage in fishing.
