2013_03_16_Somalia_Fishing h

Traders wait to sell their fish inside Mogadishu's fish market in Xamar Weyne district of the Somali capital, 16 March, 2013. Every morning Mogadishu's fisherman bring their catch ashore upon which it is quickly unloaded and transported to Xamar Weyne's lively and chaotic fish market where it is sold for consumption on the local market and increasingly, for export to other countries. Over the last two decades, instability on land has greatly restricted the development of the country's fishing industry, but now that Somalia is enjoying the longest period of sustained peace in over 20 years, there is large-scale potential and opportunity to harvest the bountiful waters off the Horn of Africa nation, which boasts the longest coastline in Africa.
