Human rights have become a salient topic in fisheries governance. This paper clarifies key terms involved in a human rights-based approach as they pertain to fishing rights. Four conceptual tension between human rights and fishing rights are discussed. Understanding such contradictions will be important for mitigating shortcomings in practice. The authors offer a way forward to inform future implementation of human rights in the context of fishing rights allocation.
The complete mitochondrial genome of Pabdah catfish, Ompok pabda (Hamilton, 1822) was determined by MiSeq platform. The genome was 16,512 bp in length, in which canonical 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs, and a control region (D-Loop) were encoded. The overall A + T (55.10%) content was higher than G + C (44.90%). Total nine genes were located at the L strand, and remaining 28 genes were at the H strand. The start codon of 12 protein-coding genes was ATG, except for COX1 (GTG).
The Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) program, funded by the African Development Bank, is a knowledge- and innovation-based response to the need to scale up proven technologies across Africa. The aim is to boost productivity and make Africa self-sufficient in key commodities. The program is being implemented in 22 countries.
