Two UN bodies have advised Tanzania to take measures that protect children from harmful work in small-scale fisheries and aquaculture.??
In a statement published jointly by the two agencies, almost every country has signed international conventions to protect children, but many have not translated these agreements into national legislation.??
The agencies are the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). They said many children are exposed to harsh and hazardous working conditions that harm their health and learning abilities.
