Title: An Econometric Study for the Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector in Sudan
Author: Rawia Mohammed Ahmed, Hafiz
Abstract: The Sudan possesses a huge wealth in animal resources, which is important base for food security and economic development. The fisheries sector in Sudan suffers a clear negligence as a result of the lack of fisheries law which was completed and fulfilled since the year 2000, and still lies in the files of the Ministry of Justice since that time, and never activated. The study is based on the knowledge of demand and consumption of fish, and the extent of the exploitation made to benefit from this great wealth in the Sudan. Research data has been collected from the Ministry of Animal Resources and the Central Bureau of Statistics in the period between 1980-2009. Linear regression and time series analysis are used to specify, estimate, and evaluate statistically and economically the result obtained by employing (SPSS) and (E-views) packages. The results showed the extent of failure experienced by this sector. Despite demand for fish is on the increase but still there is lack of health awareness as consumption of red meat is preferred. Based on the results reached, the study made a number of recommendations, the most important of all is that efforts should be exerted to increase the production of fish and to change the pattern of meat consumption in Sudan. The tendency of individuals for the consumption of red meat can be explained by it’s relative abundance. Thus efforts should be made to raise it’s production, and to raise awareness and perception of health and food since meat fish is of most nutritional value.
