cubic meters, cubic feet, lagoons, Benin, fishing

Commercial forestry and fishing are largely undeveloped in Benin. Almost all of the estimated 6.1 million cubic meters (217 million cubic feet) of wood cut in 2000 was used for fuel. Similarly, most of the 43,771 metric tons of fish produced annually are caught in inland rivers and in lagoons for subsistence use. Relatively small amounts of shrimp are landed on a commercial basis.
