IDANAU, Cameroon (PAMACC News) - It is 11 pm in Idenau, a fishing village community located on the coastal fringes of the Cameroon- Nigeria divide. Joan Dione, 58, fish trader in the locality and her two daughters are busy drying fish.
Fish business in this renown fishing habour is on the increase thanks to the installation of solar energy that has significantly reduced post post-harvest losses.
“We can now dry our fish even at night with the use of solar ovens,”says Dione, smiling.
“The demand for fish is very high, with many customers coming from big cities in Cameroon and neighbouring countries like Nigeria and Gabon.”
