The 435 miles (700 km) of the Senegalese coast benefit from a seasonal alternation between cool currents rich in minerals coming from the Canary Islands and warm equatorial currents. This makes the shoreline favorable to the development of rich and varied marine fauna. Eighty percent of coastal fishing is practiced from pirogues, dugout canoes of baobab or kapok trees, using lines or nets. But the fish also attract higher speed European boats, to the detriment of the coastal countries. Nearly 400,000 tons are caught annually, making fish Senegal’s chief economic resource. Most of the fish goes to the local market; tuna, sardines, and cod are sold right off the beach at the landing points of the pirogues. The Senegalese, like 1 billion residents of developing countries, depend on fish for 40 percent of the protein in their diet.
