Fishing

Sierra Leone has many sources of water from rivers. Throughout Sierra Leone, there are many small mountains. These mountains have rivers flowing down them, that eventully flow to the sea. These rivers provide drinking water and useful transportation routes to the sea and other towns within Sierra Leone.

Along the coast of Sierra Leone, fisherman go out onto the sea every day to catch many fish.

 The country has 570 kilometers of coastline and a continental shelf of about 30,000 square kilometers that contains commercially viable stocks of pelagic and demersal fish, shrimp, octopus, squid, lobsters, and crabs. Among the high-value exportable fish are snapper, grouper, catfish, barracuda, tuna, cuttlefish, herring, and sea bream.
