Since January 2010

From the monitoring of fish, the data collected over the time show that the growth of fish is not going on. Because there are a lot of smaller fish been caught over the time. This is due to the type of nets being used by both the industrial and artisanal fishermen.
The air temperature from January 4,2010 to November 4, 2010, has been as follow; 31, 33, 32, 37, 31, 31, 30, 28, 28, 32 and 32 degrees Celsius. The average Air Temperature from the time over view is 28 degree Celsius
From January to November, there were lots of trawlers seen very close to the coastal lines of Grand Cape Mount Count. In the beginning there no equipment to identify these trawlers numbers but, thanks to the team leader of the community sciences initiatives for providing us with the proper monitoring equipment to track these trawlers.
When we started in January 4, 2010, the beach was clean up to March, but when the sea got rough it brought in a lot of dirt on the shores. There was also a problem of chemical being used by the Fanti fishermen in April causing lots of dead fish lying along the beaches.
In January, when we started the survey, the tide level was at 28.2 meters. It started increasing in February to July. In August, it decreases by 5 meters, and in September, it continues to decrease. It increases in October and our last monitoring shows decrease. This simply means that the shape of the land is changing and there is rising tide.
Plans for the future
