The societies of current Equatorial Guinea remained for centuries outside the Atlantic slave trade. Finally, between 1785 and 1845 they became deeply involved in it, to the extent that some areas of the country came to suffer a strong demographic impact.

However, there are some interesting specificities in the case of Guinea. The Bubi people of Bioko Island always refused to become involved in trafficking and virtually no slaves came from there. And in the tiny Annobon, the Portuguese developed a plantation economy, but the Annobonese freed themselves from Portuguese rule and refused to continue the trafficking and slavery.
