UN Agencies celebrate World Food Day in Somalia by promoting fish eating to fight hunger
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have joined together with Somali authorities to encourage Somalis to eat more fish as a way to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa country. Despite Somalia’s enormous marine resources, the country’s fishing industry remains largely underdeveloped and its fisheries unexploited. This is partly due to decades of conflict and piracy on the high seas – but also because fish does not form part of the traditional Somali diet.
