Abstract: This study was conducted to assess the perceived effects of HIV/AIDS on fishing-related livelihoods in the Greater Accra Region. Respondents identified increase in medical expenses (x=3.51), reduction in time devoted to productive work (x=3.33), increased food insecurity caused by reduction in production (x=3.24), increased dependency ratios (x=3.05) and loss of labour as a result of sickness and death (x=3.00) as the perceived major effects of HIV/AIDS on fishing related livelihoods. Respondents were of the opinion that education on the effect of HIV/AIDS on production (x=2.52) is the best strategy. The study recommends that HIV/AIDS education be intensified.
