Report from fact-finding mission to Ghana 8-21 August 2015
Over the years, 19 students from Ghana have graduated from the International Fisheries Management Programme (IFM) at the Norwegian College of Fishery Science (NCFS) at the University of Tromsø, the Arctic University of Norway. In addition, three other students from Ghana are in their first and second year of the programme now. These students are trained and supervised by professors with broad experience in fisheries, aquaculture and development research from all over the world, but with no specific knowledge about fisheries and aquaculture in Ghana. Therefore, professor Bjørn Hersoug and professor Jahn Petter Johnsen from NFCS in the period 8-21 August 2015, went on an educational tour to learn more about fisheries and aquaculture in Ghana and to explore training needs and potential for educational and research collaboration with relevant institutions. The report is a summary of information from informants and of information collected from written sources.
