local fishing

the Inner Fishing Harbour, the Canoe Basin, the Outer Fishing Harbour, and a commercial area with marketing and cold storage facilities. The Inner Fishing Harbour was constructed along the Tema Main Port in 1962 to provide a handling facility for semi-industrial and industrial fishing vessels, and to encourage the development of the local fishing industry. In 1965, the Outer Fishing Harbour was constructed for bigger industrial vessels such as trawler (Fishing trawler)s, tuna vessels, and deep-sea carriers. The trawlers operating in the area are 30–45 m long and are able to land 55-65 tonnes of fish (usually redfish and club and scad mackerel) per fishing trip. The tuna vessels range from smaller boats around 45–50 m in length, able to land 200-250 tonnes of catch, to larger versions with a length of 50–65 m and the ability to land up to 650 tonnes per fishing trip. The largest fishing vessels, the deep-sea carriers (with lengths of 90–105 m), are mostly chartered vessels which land between 700-1,400 tonnes of imported fish, mostly from Mauritania and Namibia. Since 1984, the national catch has averaged about 200,000 to 300,000 metric tonnes per annum. Ghana's tuna catch has maintained a stable level of 30,000 tonnes per annum since 1981. The Canoe Basin caters for the artisanal fishermen. The basin is normally occupied by about 400 canoes. These are mainly two types: wooden vessels, locally called "Legelege", and metal vessels. The wooden canoes have lengths over all (LOA (Length overall)) ranging between 30–70 m, mainly owned and operated by indigenous (indigenous peoples) Ghanaians. Their operations peak during the months of June–September. Main catches during this period are herrings and salmon. Artisanal canoe fishing is responsible for about 70% of the catch.

It utilises the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for the 10th and 11th grades and the International Baccalaureate (IB) for the 12th and 13th grades.
