Aquaculture provides employment for nearly 2% of the Ghanaian population including women in ancillary activities after harvesting of cultured fish. The pictures are taken in the Asuogyaman District of Ghana. Fish carried out by a woman as shown in one of the photo is a part of a cage farm harvest and carried out for processing. The other pictures show some women in some of these ancillary operations. These women could be seen removing the scales as well as degutting harvested fish.
Apart from the wages they get, these women also collect the fish offal’s and fish oils for various purposes including food and in the manufacturing of some local soap.
