Abstract

The state authorities having realized the importance of small-scale fisheries in Senegalese economy, instituted several development projects. The most important are the motorization of fishing canoes and the introduction of purse seine gear in the small-scale fishery. These two projects benefit enormously from financial support programs through subsidies, credits and tax incentives. The financial aid to fisheries has contributed to the profitability of the Senegalese small-scale fishery but has also generated adverse effects in the industry with long term implications. These effects are identified and analyzed to compare the results obtained with the intended objectives. (Résumé d'auteur)
