The Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem is one of the world’s most productive marine and coastal areas, with rich fishery resources, oil and gas reserves, precious minerals, and high coastal tourism potential. It is an important global reservoir of marine biological diversity. The total economic value of the environmental goods and services provided by the GCLME's coastal and marine resources is estimated to be some $ 18 billion per year. The environmental goods and services of this shared resource support the livelihoods of approximately 40 percent of the region’s 350 million people living in proximity of, and dependent upon the fisheries and other resources provided by, the lagoons, tidal wetlands, mangroves, estuaries, river deltas, creeks, inshore and coastal waters of the GCLME for their sustenance, general well being, and the socio-economic development of their societies.
