THE CANOE BASIN
he Canoe Basin is a traditional fish landing beach and a toll free area managed by GPHA. At the Canoe Basin, the leaders of the local fishing community – the Chief Fishermen- are allowed to control day-to-day activities in the area. It caters for artisanal fishermen whose operations peak during the months of June to September with herrings as their main catch during this period.
The Fishing Harbour management maintains the facilities and assists in supervising the activities of cleaning Contractors employed by GPHA to ensure a clean and hygienic environment.
This is done as part of GPHA’s Corporate Social Responsibility to the local community and also mainly because the canoe fishermen’s trade is characterized by low levels of production and hence low incomes.
THE COMMERCIAL AREA:
Adjacent to the operational area of the Fishing Harbour is a commercial area where lands have been leased for fish related activities. These include: A fish market which sells fresh and frozen fish to the public; Cold storage facilities; Commercial banks; Warehouses which ship stores; Shops which sell fish gears and parts, and a fish processing factory (PFC).
