Issued on: Modified:
The West African nation of Liberia is endowed with vast natural resources. Among them: rubber, gold, diamond and timber. The country's stretch of Atlantic Ocean is also a large natural resource, which has not yet been fully exploited by Liberian fishermen. Instead, according to government officials, local fishermen currently have to compete with boats from neighbouring Côte d'Ivoire and industrial fishing vessels from Asia.
