Community leader Kuriani Wartanoi from the fishing village of Menarbu in Indonesia explains why she attended the #CFIgef global exchange visit in Peru and the importance of the traditional Sasi fisheries management practice for environmental sustainability. 

FAO Fishery Officer Nicolas Gutierrez explains the importance of global knowledge exchange to empower small-scale fishers and fish workers so that they can ensure sustainable small-scale fisheries and preserve the ecosystems they depend on for their livelihoods.

Juvino Vieira from the Cabo Verde Shipowners’ Association explains why the private sector wants to work with authorities to achieve sustainable fisheries, for example by implementing a fish auction system in the Praia Fishing Port.
