Report of Tests on Use Of Solar-Tents for Fish Drying in the Gambia

A substantial amount of the total annual landings of fish in the Gambia is sundried and this paper discusses the use of solar dryers for this purpose. Solartent dryers appear to have considerable promise particularly in terms of costs when local and low-cost materials are used for their construction. But, further work should be carried out to improve durability of the dryer, increase the loading capacity and improve its drying efficiency.
