PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A delegation from a university in Ghana is visiting the University of Rhode Island to expand on an agreement between the schools for cooperative research.

URI’s Coastal Resources Center is leading the implementation of a five-year, $24 million sustainable fisheries project in Ghana.

The group from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana plans to meet with URI’s president Wednesday.

Two URI fisheries experts have been living in Ghana for a year to help revitalize marine fisheries stocks through responsible fishing practices and improved governance.

URI is helping the University of Cape Coast build its program for coastal and fisheries management education so Ghanaians can sustain their fisheries after the project ends.

The project is supported by the United States Agency for International Development, which works to end extreme poverty.
