Fishing Port in Takoradi, Ghana on Tuesday: no take day

Takoradi, Ghana is bustling fishing port. However, we would not have seen any fishing boats if it wasn't Tuesday, declared a 'no take' day. The idea is that by having a day of no fishing, the fishery is a more sustainable operation. On any other day of the week, the port would not have been nearly as busy.
