Une Θtude des produits halieutiques de faible valeur commercialisΘs dans la rΘgion du Lac Victoria

LÆessor de la pΩche commerciale, notamment de lÆexportation de la perche du Nil, a entraεnΘ la rΘduction des stocks de poissons et de la disponibilitΘ du poisson auprΦs des populations de la rΘgion du Lac Victoria. Cette baisse ne menace pas seulement les moyens dÆexistence des pΩcheurs artisanaux et des transformateurs mais elle met Θgalement en danger la sΘcuritΘ nutritionnelle et alimentaire des populations de la rΘgion. Pendant que les stocks de perche du Nil (Lates niloticus) et de tilapia continuent de diminuer, les pΩcheurs artisanaux se tournent vers le poisson de faible valeur comme le mukene (Rastreneobola Argentea) et les transformateurs se tournent vers la transformation des sous-produits issus des opΘrations de filetage. Cette transition est dΘsirable mais nÆassure pas pour autant lÆaccΦs au poisson des populations des pays riverains. La prΘsente Θtude a pour but de documenter la contribution des produits halieutiques de faible valeur α la sΘcuritΘ alimentaire et nutritionnelle des individus vivant avec le VIH/SIDA et des personnes en danger de malnutrition. Compte tenu de la prΘvalence ΘlevΘe de la malnutrition dans la rΘgion du Lac Victoria, il est nΘcessaire de rΘglementer Æutilisation et le commerce des produits halieutiques de faible valeur pour amΘliorer lÆaccΦs au poisson chez les populations gravement menacΘe de malnutrition.
