A scientific-technical workshop on the MEKROU project was organised by the JRC and the AGRHYMET Regional Centre was held in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) from 19-23 September 2017.

Technical services were provided by the national ministries (Agriculture and Hydrology) and meteorological services of Burkina Faso, Benin and Niger - the three countries involved in the MEKROU project.

In a new publication in Frontiers in Marine Sciences, a group of international scientists, led by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), developed habitat predictions for skipjack tuna feeding.

Those predictions can help monitor the dynamics of the population and guide the fisheries deployment and intensity.

Skipjack tuna currently accounts for about 60% of the annual global tuna catch, making it the third most fished species globally (FAO, 2014).

With the human population continuing to grow and the developing world gaining in prosperity, the global demand for food will rise. New food resources must therefore be explored, along with strategies that enable the sustainable exploitation of such resources.

The oceans and seas harbour a huge potential to contribute to global food security through fisheries and aquaculture. The exploitation of marine natural resources also provides opportunities for jobs and income.
