(Business in Cameroon) - In the forthcoming months, the mission for the development of traditional offshore and inshore fishing (Mission de développement de la pêche artisanale maritime- MIDEPECAM) should launch a project to promote shrimps from Bakassi peninsula (popularly called Gambas).  

During a meeting of MIDEPECAM’s management board, it was revealed that thanks to the project, gambas would be supplied to local markets and foreign countries.

Apart from this project which could create a shrimp sector in Cameroon, MIDEPECAM wants to finalize the construction of an ice production unit in Idenau in the Southwest in 2018. This infrastructure is set to boost the conservation of fish products.
