Tunisia - Second Fisheries Project (English)

The Project aims to (i) increase the whitefish, shrimp, and octopus production by 8,600 t, 160 t and 60 t respectively, per annum; (ii) offer improved income opportunities to about 2,000 existing fishermen and create about 1,750 jobs for new fishermen and 250 jobs in other project related services; (iii) increase the efficiency of the fisheries subsector through reorganization of its administration; and (iv) improve the skills of fishermen through on-the-job training. The project would finance investments in (i) new port infrastructure and shore facilities to serve as a base for coastal fishing activities along the Tunisian coast; (ii) boat repair facilities and ice making and cold storage equipment; (iii) boat construction for 400 boats of 11.25 m overall length and 30 boats of 13.80 m overall length; and (iv) training equipment and vehicles. Technical assistance for construction, supervision, training and preparation of studies for the expansion of ports in Tabarka and Kelibia and research on the potential of lagoon fishing and exploitable fish stocks would also be financed. The main risk involved in the project would result from a delay in the implementation and operation of the new organizational set-up proposed under the project.
