He noted that the situation was putting many young girls at risk of contracting dangerous sexually transmitted diseases. He said the fishing communities in the metropolis, including Brofoyedur, Ntsin, Gyeagyemu, Gyeagyeano, Anaafo and Kwaprow, near the University of Cape Coast, were faced with that situation of sex for money.
He indicated that poverty was increasing in the fishing communities, worsening child neglect and forcing children into child prostitution.
He said the situation required urgent attention from all stakeholders, especially the traditional authorities, to reduce the incidence.
Mr Kwesi Johnson of Friends of the Nation said the issue of child labour and trafficking CLaT , especially within the coastal communities, was huge. He observed that dwindling fisheries stock had affected artisanal fishing, increasing poverty to crisis proportions within the last three decades. According to him, declining fish harvest had seriously deepened poverty in the coastal fishing communities, saying children in these communities were being forced into all sorts of illegalities.
Mr Johnson said the issue of institutional weakness in state agencies and local structure to deal with child labour and trafficking had been a major challenge. He also called for the gaps in law enforcement to be plugged to help reduce the expenses made in rescuing and rehabilitating victims. Nana Kweigyah, an anti-CLaT advocate, noted that fishermen were now resorting to the use of children to cut cost in their operations. He said many children were also engaged in selling at the beaches, even at night, and did not go to school.
