    GuineaBissau has a coastline on the Atlantic Ocean, which is rich with shellfish and fish. The country has entered into joint venture in fishing with the Portuguese, Algerian, and Russian companies which accounted for about 40% of government revenues between 1992 and 1996. Overfishing has been a big problem together with the lax laws which have led to a significant drop in fishing potential. Similarly, EU quota system and endorsement of modernization program have also affected production. GuineaBissau also in 1996 agreed with six other countries in West Africa to monitor fishing zones in the region. It is estimated that about 0.25 and 0.3 million metric tons could be harvested if illegal fishing were eliminated. Bijagos Archipelago, which is a cluster of about 80 islands off the coast of GuineaBissau, is famous for fishing where tarpons weighing as much as more than 150 pounds are found.

    GuineaBissau has experienced many years of political instability and economic downturn. In 1997, the country joined the CFA franc monetary system which resulted in the stability of the monetary system. However, the civil war in the late 1990s and the military coup in 2003 disrupted virtually all the economic activity affecting to a large extent the social and economic infrastructure and further deepening the already rampant poverty levels. GuineaBissau is still on the recovery road from the long periods of instability, and the political environment is still fragile. However, the country has begun to show signs of economic recovery and IMF has extended and supported structural reforms. The main challenges facing GuineaBissau for the period ahead include rebuilding public administration, achieving fiscal discipline, trying to improve the economy for private investment participation, and attempting to promote economic diversification.
