ACCRA nike air force 270 mens black hyper jade for sale , Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Ghanaian government has declared a "red alert" in all forms of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing methods in Ghana, by an executive fiat.
Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Maafo told state-run Ghana News Agency Thursday that the relevant law enforcement agencies were, therefore, enjoined to carry out the order to the letter.
Addressing a conference on Fisheries and Coastal Environment in Accra, Maafo noted that the harm caused to the fishing industry in Ghana through illegal and unregulated fishing was far worse than what illegal mining was causing to rivers nike air force 270 hyper jade for sale , forest reserves and farm lands.
He said, over the period, there had been emphasis on voluntary compliance of the fishery laws but regretfully, most of the fisher folks had failed to heed to the call, giving way to increase in illicit fishing methods coupled with its economic and health implications.
He called on stakeholders to partner with the government to fight illegal fishing to ensure sustainable development of the fishing industry which is important to the national economy as it provided direct and indirect support for over two million people in Ghana.
The declaration came some few days after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo called for an end to illegal fishing methods and the over-exploitation of the country's marine resource, saying the two cannot continue as they threaten the very essence of the country's existence.
Over the years nike air force 270 red white for sale , and especially in recent times, nearly all of Ghana's marine fisheries and some inland fisheries have been overfished.
Although population growth can be said to be a contributory factor, the "twin-evils" of illegal fishing and the over-exploitation of marine resources have worsened the already dire situation.
Ghana, which consumes over 950,000 metric tons of fish annually, currently imports over 60 percent of its fish.
In 2016 nike air force 270 ream red for sale , the West African country imported 135 million dollars worth of fish due to the reduction in its fish stock.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- While U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed support for demonstrators in Iran and engaged in heightened rhetoric, the United States is likely to hang back and avoid direct involvement nike air force 270 medium olive mens for sale , U.S. experts said.
"The U.S. will probably limit its involvement mainly to moral support for the protestors," David Pollock, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, told Xinhua.
Protests erupted on Dec. 28, 2017, in Mashhad in north Iran nike air force 270 medium olive for sale , sparked by frustration over high prices of basic goods such as eggs, the price of which has recently soared by 40 percent, according to international media reports.
The unrest spread quickly over the next several days. Blue-collar Iranians also want a higher pay and a way to address the nation's widespread problem of unemployement, global media reported.
Trump took to social media earlier this week in support of the protesters, saying that Iran is "failing at every level" and that it is "time for change" in Iran.
Despite his pro-demonstrators tone, experts said the president is unlikely to go much further nike air force 270 atmosphere shoes for sale , with perhaps a few exceptions.
Pollock said Trump's rhetoric reflects the president's strong view of Iran as an enemy.
The protests were "not necessarily going to be historic in the grand scheme of things, and so maybe we don't want to get too carried away yet predicting what's going to happen next," said Michael O'Hanlon, a senior fellow on foreign policy at the Brookings Institution,
Many observers are asking why protesters chose this period to demonstrate. "They want the Iranian government to turn its attention homeward," O'Hanlon gave one explanation.
Analysts argued that it would be unwise for the United States to directly involve itself in the protests.
"Given the history of past U.S. involvement in Iranian domestic politics nike air force 270 sherbert for sale , the best thing for the United States would be to continue to do little to intervene or directly support these protests," Dan Mahaffee, senior vice president and director of policy at the Center for the Study of Congress and the Presidency, told Xinhua.
Iran has blasted back at the U.S. stance. Iran's ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo slammed the U.S. government's attempts to intervene in the domestic affairs.
